MARLOW, OK (KSWO) -Police in Marlow are searching for a man who they say punched a female officer in the face during an attempted arrest.

The man is identified as Mike Brown. Police say it happened around midnight Tuesday outside the Love's on Highway 81. An officer stopped to question two people she thought were juveniles out after curfew. A backup officer joined her on the stop, and during the conversation she decided she needed to handcuff Brown. He resisted and hit her in the face. The other officer grabbed Brown, but after a brief scuffle, he ran away and hasn't been seen since.

"I want him to either turn himself in and stop the running, or it's just going to get worse if you don't. We need to get him picked up, it would be on his best that he turn himself in," said Marlow Police Chief Elvis Walker.

Chief Walker says Brown does have family in the Rush Springs area. He says Brown faces felony charges of resisting an officer and several drug charges.
