The officer was treated for injuries after the incident Sunday afternoon at a Shell station near the edge of the Gentilly neighborhood.
Police were still looking on Monday for the driver and the black Infiniti FX35 with a temporary license tag.
A news release says the incident began when officers approached the SUV because of "suspicious activity."
