Cybersecdn-In a shocking incident on the Upper East Side, Sahara Dula, a 24-year-old resident of Brooklyn, faces severe legal consequences after allegedly hitting a New York Police Department officer with her vehicle. This incident occurred when Dula was reportedly driving a gray Lexus on the wrong side of the street.
The NYPD, responding to an unrelated high-end clothing store robbery by a group of thieves, had just secured the scene where the culprits had abandoned their black Lexus. During this operation, Dula, driving the wrong way, reportedly accelerated her vehicle when instructed to stop by a police officer, resulting in the officer being struck and injured.
The impact caused injuries to the officer’s legs and arms. Dula’s actions have led to charges of vehicular assault, assault, reckless endangerment, and impaired driving. This incident adds to her previous legal troubles, as she was arrested in March 2022 for criminal mischief.
The incident has sparked concern among law enforcement and the public. The Police Benevolent Association (PBA) expressed their distress on social media, highlighting the risks officers face and calling for community support in protecting law enforcement.
