DOVER - Investigators have released the names of two suspects accused of seriously injuring a Dover police officer with their car.

Prosecutors say Michael Medici and Colleen Mcdonough, both of Rockaway Township, have been arrested.

They say the incident started when the officer responded to a call of possible carbon monoxide poisoning. The officer approached the two suspects who were sitting in a car Saturday afternoon.

Officials say the officer’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.

They say Medici faces assault by auto and aggravated assault charges, while Mcdonough faces resisting arrest charges.
