Please view story with caution, the video may be disturbing to some. It all started when police were called about a robbery at First United Bank on East Colfax Avenue and Jersey Street.

Police say a man stole a car from a nearby home.

Officers caught up with the man a short distance away.

When the officer approached the car, the man ran. SKY9 was there as the foot chase began.

The officer knocked the man down about a half block later at East Colfax and Hudson. The man got up to run again and that is when the unmarked police car hit them both. The man was thrown several feet into the street and the officer went up on the hood.

It is not clear how severe the injuries were, but the man was picked up and put in a patrol car.

More than 10 other police cars responded to the scene and Colfax was shut down for a time due to the investigation.
