Man arrested for attempt to murder San Bernardino police officers

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (KABC) -- A man was arrested on suspicion of attempting to murder two police officers in San Bernardino County Saturday night.

At 5:35 p.m. in the 1500 block of E. Pumalo Street, two San Bernardino police officers were finishing an investigation. As the pair walked across the street to their police vehicle, they heard an engine revving and then saw a black BMW SUV heading toward them at a high speed.

The officers were able to get out of the way as the car continued to barrel toward them. A chase ensued once the officers were able to get into their car.

The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Terrance Jamal Cummings, ran a stop sign and quickly drove down the street to avoid police.

Officers lost sight of the car in the 2300 block of N. Osbun Road, but it was later found in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Cummings was found inside an apartment and was arrested.

A search warrant was obtained for the apartment and the car, which was towed to the police department for processing. Cummings was also issued to provide a blood sample because police believed he may have been intoxicated.

Cummings was booked into the San Bernardino County Jail for attempted murder of a peace officer, and his case has been forward to the district attorney's office for review.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Al Tello at (909) 821-8507 or Sgt. C. Williams at (909) 693-6665.
