DENVER — A pedestrian and a parked Denver Police Department (DPD) patrol car were struck in hit-and-runs on Saturday morning, and a suspect was in custody, according to police.
DPD received the call of the incidents about 8:40 a.m., a police spokesman said.
The parked patrol vehicle was hit at West 14th Avenue and Delaware Street, and officers sustained minor injuries, the spokesman said.
The pedestrian was hit at East 14th Avenue and North Broadway and sustained injuries that were not life-threatening, he said.
The vehicle did not stay on scene in either incident. It was unclear which happened first, the spokesman said.
When asked whether the incidents involved the same vehicle, the spokesman said DPD was investigating a series of incidents involving a vehicle. He said there were more incidents than the two near downtown but did not have an exact number or information on any additional incidents.
The suspect, a man, was arrested in a neighboring jurisdiction to the north of Denver, the spokesman said. DPD did not identify the suspect or the jurisdiction he was arrested in.
Meanwhile, Commerce City Police responded to a scene at 7800 Quincy Parkway on Saturday morning. Their spokesman said DPD was the lead agency on that incident.

Whether the incidents involving the vehicle were intentional, or whether alcohol or drugs were being investigated as a factor, the DPD spokesman said nothing was off the table.
