A Phoenix man rammed a stolen car into two vehicles, including a police cruiser in North Phoenix, according to court records.

Documents show that on July 13 around 10:30 p.m., 24-year-old Matthew Keene Lund nearly hit another car as he left a gas station near 27th Avenue and Bell Road. The victim in the other car then followed Lund and then Lund intentionally hit that car, police said.

Later, near 23rd Avenue and Union Hills Drive, Lund intentionally rammed a police car, officials said. Lund drove about three blocks away before getting out of the car and running on foot and jumping into residential yards.

Police said they used a helicopter and canines to find Lund, who was hiding in a motor home.

Lund has been arrested charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault, criminal damage and car theft.
