A North Belle Vernon police officer suffered a minor injury after being hit by a Rostraver Township police vehicle while assisting on a domestic disturbance call 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Sgt. Ron Van Scyoc sustained a minor injury to his leg, Rostraver police reported.

Devon Johnson-Brown, 22, of 1013 Monongahela Ave., Pricedale, was charged with false information to law enforcement, flight to avoid apprehension, trial or punishment and resisting arrest.

Police responded to the scene and Johnson-Brown allegedly provided a false name to police and fled on foot, police said. He was apprehended nearly four blocks from the address. He was found to be wanted for felony drug charges and other related offenses from the Charleroi Regional Police Department.

Van Scyoc was treated at the scene by Rostraver-West Newton Emergency Medical Services and transported to Monongahela Valley Hospital where he was later treated and released, police said.

Johnson-Brown was arraigned before Judge Bruce King, who was sitting in for Magisterial District Judge Joseph Dalfonso. He was jailed on $100,000 straight cash bond.
