CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A Forest Park police officer is recovering in the hospital after he was intentionally struck by a naked woman who hijacked a police vehicle, authorities said.
On Saturday, officers were called to the 4800 block of North Lake Drive in response to an intoxicated person. When they arrived, police said they found a naked woman, identified as 23-year-old Alyssa Caballero, trying to get inside of a home that was not hers.
Police said Caballero was taken into custody and placed into the back seat of a patrol car because she was cold and concern for her safety. At some point, she was able to get free and hijacked the car, police said.
While she was leaving the scene, police said she intentionally struck Officer C. Sloan with the patrol vehicle. She continued to drive recklessly onto Main Street, where she damaged property along the way, police say.
She finally was stopped a short distance away and was taken into custody.
Caballero is facing several charges, including aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and serious injury by vehicle.
Sloan was treated on scene by Forest Park Fire Department and then taken to a local hospital. The officer has undergone one surgery on his leg and has another surgery scheduled. Police say he is in good spirits and is recovering well.
