LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- The Shepherdsville Police Department needs your help finding a woman who allegedly ran over a police officer.

Officers were trying to arrest 31-year-old Taira Litsey Sunday night on an outstanding warrant.

"When they went to place her under arrest and serve that warrant she resisted, got in the vehicle, striking the officer and fled the scene," Sgt. Ken Bernardi told WDRB News. 

Police say Litsey drove away from the scene and ran over an officer's leg. The officer was treated and released from the hospital Monday.

Litsey is a white female, approximately 5'4", 130lbs with black hair and green eyes.  

At the time of the assault, Litsey was in the company of Logan Lamb. He's a 28-year-old white male, approximately 5'9", 160 lbs with brown hair and blue eyes. Police don't know what charges he could face just yet.

"That again I don't know what other interaction he had. He could be simply in the wrong place, in the wrong car, in the wrong time. I don't know," Sgt. Bernardi said.

Litsey and Lamb were last seen driving a red 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible with plate 274 TYJ.

According to an update from Shepherdsville Police around noon Monday, that vehicle was found abandoned in the 2000 block of KY44 West in Shepherdsville.

It is believed that the suspect may now be operating a bronze 2002 Buick Park Avenue that was reported stolen this morning. The Buick has Kentucky license plate 540-ECY, has damage on the rear bumper and has a "Friends of Coal" sticker.

Willie Faye Walker and her grandson Zachary Bennington live across the street from the gas station where the incident happened. They cannot believe what happened. 

"It seems like people don't care about people no more," Walker said.

"If she's going to do this to a police officer, then I see no hesitation in her coming and doing it somebody else, that's for sure," Bennington added.

If you see either suspect, you're asked to contact the Shepherdsville Police Department at 502-543-7074, the anonymous tip line at 502-215-1588, or your local police department by dialing 911.
