Walla Walla police believe 20-year-old Kyle Zenk took his hands off the wheel and hit the gas to punish the girl in the vehicle with him after she refused his sexual advances.

That was after he punched the 15-year-old girl about 7:30 this morning near Park and Cherry Street in Walla Walla.

Surprisingly, Zenk then tried calling police from a payphone claiming someone stole his car.

The girl, who partially flew through the windshield and sustained several injuries, told police differently. It appears Zenk dropped his wallet while climbing over a fence near the gas station. As of Friday afternoon he was still on the run.
