The woman told Deputies that after she was hit, she hid behind a shed in the backyard, then ran to a nearby residence to call for help.

Officer Harris tried to get away before Deputies showed up but they caught him about a block away.

He has been temporarily suspended from the department, without pay.

Harris has been with the SAPD since 2016.
