Avon & Somerset Police are appealing for witnesses after a plain-clothed officer was carried on the bonnet of a car.
The incident happened in Chapel Street, Bristol, between 20:00 hours and 20:45 hours on Friday 17th January.
The British Transport Police officer was walking along the road when he was called over by a man in a new silver-coloured VW Passet estate.
After he identified himself as a police officer, the driver of the Passet drove away, carrying the officer on the bonnet of the car.
The officer then fell from the car near to the junction with Camwal Road. The driver of the Passet did not stop and fled from the scene.
The PC was not seriously injured during the incident.
The driver of the Passet is described as being in his late 20s or early 30s, with a fat face and “chubby” build. He has been described as of Asian appearance, clean-shaven with dark hair.
At the time of the incident, the suspect was wearing a white or cream-coloured shirt.
If you saw the incident or have any dashcam or CCTV footage, then you are asked to call Avon & Somerset Police on the non-emergency 101 number quoting reference 5220013464.
