Dothan police have identified the suspect wanted in an attack on two police officers Monday evening.

Officers are searching for Brandon Rashawn McGhee.

Dothan police Chief Steve Parrish said the attack occurred on Montgomery Highway near Dothan Motor Lodge and O’Reilly Auto Parts.

“As the officers attempted to make an arrest, one officer was struck by the suspect’s fist,” Parrish said. “The second officer attempted to chase the suspect as he fled on foot, and was also struck with a suspect’s fist.”

One officer was treated at the scene, and the other officer reported no injuries.

McGhee was recently released from the Alabama Department of Corrections, said Dothan police Lt. Doug Magill.

Court documents show McGhee was convicted of first-degree burglary.

Parrish said the suspect’s vehicle was seized after narcotics were found in it.

Anyone with information on McGhee’s whereabouts should call the Police Department at 334-615-3000.
