WEST JORDAN, Utah — A 39-year-old woman was taken into custody over the weekend after fleeing the scene of a police investigation. Her attempt to flee resulted in the near assault of a West Jordan police officer. 

West Jordan Police received a call about a disorderly individual on Saturday. Once on the scene, police investigated the situation and found the suspect to be uncooperative. The suspect has been identified as Kimberly Duvall.

Police say as the officer was trying to open the door to the suspect’s vehicle, she rolled up the windows on her vehicle and locked her doors. She then put her seat belt on and put the vehicle in reverse. 

As the suspect reversed her vehicle, the officer had to run out of the way to avoid being struck by the vehicle. Additionally, the suspect’s vehicle struck the front end of the officer’s patrol car before fleeing the area. Police say she fled the scene at a high rate of speed. 

It was also discovered during the incident that the suspect’s 9-year-old child was in the backseat of the vehicle.

Police say Duvall has been booked into the Salt Lake County Jail. She has been booked on investigation for assault of a police officer with a dangerous weapon, which is a second-degree felony.

Additionally, she has also been booked for investigation of child abuse and failure to stop at the command of law enforcement. Both of those are class A misdemeanors.
