A San Francisco police officer is in stable condition after a suspect driving a vehicle allegedly struck the officer early this morning in an attempt to run the officer over, according to police.

At approximately midnight, the officer arrived in the unit block of Mirabela Avenue to respond to a possible auto burglary, police said.

Officers were able to immediately take the suspect into custody. The injured officer was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.

The officer suffered broken ribs and leg injuries, police said. Two other possible suspects who may have been involved in the incident were detained, police said.
