CHEEKTOWAGA, NY - An alleged assault in Cheektowaga Thursday morning led to a police chase both on the roads and through people's backyards.
Police say the suspect reportedly attacked a woman at the Millennium Hotel on Walden Avenue, and then took off in a friend's car.
He ran off after sideswiping a school bus and spinning out in the intersection of Walden and Harlem.
Lt. Tony Filipski of the Cheektowaga Police Department told us:"The driver of the car got out and ran on foot through the yards. Our officers set up a perimeter. They tried to close it in, but he got through the perimeter, and the state police responded with a tracking dog."
Despite that the man got away. But police say they know who he is, and they also stress the community was never in any danger.
