Two Overland Park police detectives were pepper sprayed and struck after attempting to make a felony theft arrest.

At about 4:15 p.m., detectives were attempting to arrest a female and male suspect for felony theft at a retail establishment in the 11500 block of W. 95th St. when both suspects resisted arrest.

The female suspect struck and pepper sprayed the detectives before she was taken into custody. 

A male suspect ran from the scene.

Other detectives chased the male suspect on foot until they lost sight of him near the southwest corner of 95th Street and Quivira Road. 

Police conducted a perimeter search of the area, but they were unable to locate the male suspect.

The male suspect at large is a 19 to 22-year-old black male, 6'0'', thin build, wearing blue jeans and a red and white plaid shirt. 

Three detectives were injured and were treated for their injuries at a nearby hospital. 

The female suspect was taken to jail after a brief struggle. That suspect, Latrina K. Newsome, has been charged in Johnson County with three counts of battery on a law enforcement officer and one count of theft.

The Jackson, Mississippi native has been arrested for theft several times in the past. 

If you have any information on this case, please contact the Overland Park Police Department at 913-895-6300.
