SEEKONK — A suspect in a larceny at the Seekonk Home Depot on Monday has been arrested after police said he hit an officer with his car, then led police on a chase, striking multiple vehicles and then crashing his own car.

Seekonk police said 32-year-old Albert Rosario of Providence had nine active warrants for his arrest in Massachusetts at the time.

Just before noon on Monday, police were dispatched to the Home Depot on Highland Avenue for a reported larceny in progress.

Police said the suspect — later identified as Rosario — fled the store when officers arrived and got into a car in the parking lot, driving towards officers.

As he fled, police said he struck one officer and drove directly at another.

The officer who was hit was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for minor injuries, according to police.

Following a short chase on Route 6 during which police said Rosario struck multiple vehicles, he ended up rolling over his own car in East Providence.

East Providence Police took Rosario into custody without further incident, according to police.

He is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, using a motor vehicle while committing a felony, shoplifting, failing to stop for police, driving without a license, reckless driving, and a variety of traffic charges.
