On Saturday around 7:00 p.m., officers were called to the 1600 block of East Amarillo Boulevard.
Police located 25-year-old Shaila Schlenz and 26-year-old Charles Abdnor who both gave fake names to the officers. Police say the suspects were in a car that had been stolen out of Kansas.
Schlenz had been reported missing from Liberal, Kansas.
When police tried to remove Abdnor from the car to identify him, he accelerated the car with one of the officers holding onto him, dragging the officer and causing the officer to fall to the ground.

Police found both suspects in the 300 block of South Aldredge.
Police say Abdnor had two warrants for burglary and one warrant for arson in Liberal, Kansas. He was arrested for those warrants, as well as aggravated assault against a public servant, fraudulent use or possession of identifying information, evading arrest or detention with a vehicle and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
