SYKESVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – DuBois-based State Police say a DuBois man faces several charges including aggravated assault after an attempted traffic stop last night led to a police chase.

According to police, sometime between 11:00 p.m. and 11:20 p.m. on May 29, a trooper from PSP Punxsutawney attempted to make a traffic stop within Sykesville Borough on a 1995 Buick Century being operated by 52-year-old Bob Allen Larson, of DuBois.

Police say Larson “refused to stop for the trooper and a chase ensued.”

During the chase, Larson committed several traffic violations “including striking the state police cruiser with his vehicle,” according to police.
