A 20-year-old man faces several charges after being accused of dragging a Philadelphia police officer three blocks Sunday with his car.

According to the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, Naim Woodley was charged with Aggravated Assault, Resisting Arrest and other related charges Monday.

Woodley is accused of dragging the officer, who was on patrol Sunday in the area of the 3100 block of G Street.

Investigators say the officer had heard a person screaming in the area and was out investigating when the incident occurred.

The district attorney's office says bail was set at $250,000 for Woodley. He is scheduled to appear in court again later this month.

Police say the officer was taken to a nearby hospital for scrapes and cuts to the left hand and pain to the lower back.

Police have not released the name of the officer.
