34-year-old Victor Rivera, of Lebanon, remains at large heading into Thursday, Dec. 16, following an alleged violent escape from the Lebanon County Sheriff’s Office on the evening of Tuesday, Dec. 14.

Lebanon County District Attorney Pier Hess Graf released information on the incident to local media on Wednesday, Dec. 15. DA Hess Graf said that Rivera fled from the Lebanon County Sheriff’s Office when deputies attempted to arrest him on an active warrant. Hess Graf said that Rivera fled in a Ford F-150 pickup truck, and that initial investigation revealed that Rivera had intentionally driven at the deputies to evade arrest, before a deputy discharged his firearm in Rivera’s direction, after which Rivera changed course, struck a building, and escaped from the scene.

The pickup truck is a white Ford F-150 ‘Super Cab’ with Pennsylvania plates of ZSX-3144. Rivera was described as a dark-haired Hispanic male, approximately 6′ tall, and of medium build.

Hess Graf said that the deputies involved were not harmed.
