KILLEEN (June 29, 2012)--Charges have been formalized and bond has been set for a Killeen man who led police officers on a chase on Tuesday afternoon that left two officers injured.
Roel Reando Brown, 25, was held in the Bell County Jail Friday in lieu of bonds totaling $105,000, charged with aggravated sexual assault and evading arrest or detention.
The two police officers who were injured during a foot chase while trying to serve an arrest warrant on Brown on Tuesday both have been released from area hospitals.
The injured officers were among a group of about 10 officers involved in the chase with Brown who bolted as he was being arrested on an aggravated assault warrant at around 1:55 p.m. Tuesday at apartments at 702 Santa Rosa.
A Chevrolet Avalanche struck one of the officers at the intersection of Hallmark and Dimple as he pursued Brown into the street.
Law enforcement officers flooded the area and a medical helicopter landed at a nearby school to fly the injured officer to Temple.
The other officer was bitten by a police dog during the chase.
The dog, from the department's K-9 unit, was attempting to go after Brown when it bit the officer, police said.
The driver of the Avalanche stopped after the truck struck the officer and was being interviewed by investigators.
Brown was arrested at 2:55 p.m. off Adela Street, about a block away.
Officers used a stun gun while making the arrest.
