Police say they received a call that a man was punching a female driver in her car Thursday morning around 8:11 a.m. on the 900 block of Wickham Rd.
When police arrived, Jackson fled the scene and ran through a number of private properties and residential neighborhoods to avoid officers.

“We want to thank all that assisted us in this call today. It is only with the cooperation and assistance of the general public that we can do our best work. Thank you!”
