Rehoboth -
A Rhode Island man, wanted on two felony warrants, eluded police dogs and a helicopter searching for him in the Davis Street area Friday night.
Michael A. Carter, 23, of Pawtucket, R.I., was observed running from the rear of a house at 146 Davis St. toward a wooded area about 5:30 p.m., when Officer Keith Perry and Lt. Bruce A. Dube responded to a 911 hang-up call.
Carter was identified for police by a resident of the house.
Swansea police assisted in securing a perimeter of the area as K-9 units from Rehoboth, state police and the Bristol County Sheriff's Office responded to aid in the search. South Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Collaborative officers and a state police helicopter also joined the search, but Carter escaped.
"The search was made difficult by dense woods and the vastness of the area," Dube said.
Pawtucket police did not find Carter at his residence.
Anyone with information regarding Carter's whereabouts is asked to contact Rehoboth police at 508-252-3722.
In an unrelated incident Friday, Perry was injured when his cruiser struck a utility pole on Providence Street as he responded to a reported "violent domestic assault and battery" at 75 Pleasant St. about 11:30 p.m., Dube said. Perry was released after being treated at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence.

Rehoboth officer 'lucky to be alive' after crash

REHOBOTH - A local police officer escaped serious injury after his cruiser crashed into a utility pole on Providence Street late Friday night while responding to a domestic incident.

Patrolman Keith Perry had to be extricated by firefighters from the vehicle, which was totalled, police said. The utility pole was snapped and power was lost to the neighborhood.

Perry was transported by Swansea ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, where he was treated and released, Lt. Bruce Dube said.

"He is lucky to be alive," Sgt. James Medeiros said.

The accident was reported at 11:34 p.m. The domestic incident at a home at 75 Pleasant St. involved a father reportedly hitting his son with a shovel. The father, who fled the home, was charged with domestic assault and battery but not arrested, and the son was taken to Morton Hospital in Taunton for treatment, Medeiros said.

Busy night

Perry earlier in the evening had responded to a home on Davis Street where a man wanted on two felony warrants had run off from. Local, area and state police with dogs and a helicopter Friday night searched for the man, to no avail.

"It was just a crazy night," Medeiros said. "They say nothing ever happens in Rehoboth."
