A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in Menlo Park on Friday night, after police said he drove a stolen car at a woman filming him arguing with a neighbor.

Maurice VasquezLopez, of Redwood City, was reportedly arguing from inside a parked car at Nealon Park about 10:30 p.m., when he drove toward the 33-year-old woman filming him, police said.

The car hit the woman, causing serious injuries, and then VasquezLopez started to flee the park as police arrived. His car rammed a Menlo Park Police vehicle, preventing the suspect from escaping.

The car he was driving was stolen and he was suspected of being under the influence.
