A man who was dodging cars on a Manhattan street, leading to police gunfire that wounded two bystanders, faces multiple counts including menacing and resisting arrest, according to the NYPD.

Glenn Broadnax, 35, of Brooklyn, has also been arrested on a charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance, said police.

"The individual continued to allude the officers. He simulated shooting at the officers," said NYPD Cmsr. Ray Kelly.

Two officers opened fire Saturday night near Times Square after Broadnax made movements suggesting he had a weapon, though he turned out to be unarmed. The officers' shots-- three in total-- missed him, and he was eventually brought down by a stun gun, said police.

The bullets struck a 54-year-old woman in the right knee and a grazed a 35-year-old woman in the buttocks, police said. Neither had injuries considered life threatening.

Broadnax is in custody. He reportedly has 23 prior arrests, according to the NY Post.

The officers are on desk duty while an investigation is conducted.
