A television news reporter was intentionally run over by a woman outside her South Side apartment on Tuesday evening, Columbus police said.
Steve Levine, a reporter with WSYX-TV (Channel 6), was attempting to interview Terresa E. Peters, 27, behind a home on Neff Avenue when she ran over him with her car and fled about 6:30 p.m., according to police detectives.
Levine, 51, who was with a cameraman during the incident, was transported to OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, where he was in good condition with a broken leg.
Levine was working on an investigative story about packages stolen from front porches, said Columbus police assault-squad detective Glenn Bray. Levine and the cameraman had left a package on a front porch, then confronted Peters after they thought she had taken it, Bray said.
