EUREKA, Mont. (AP) - A 28-year-old man is expected to be charged in Lincoln County after officials say he ran down a Eureka bicyclist with a car in order to rob the victim.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/22t3ZEg ) that Montana Highway Patrol officers say the victim was riding a bicycle on Highway 37 on May 9 when he was struck from behind. The suspect then went through the cyclist’s bag and stashed his vehicle.

Trooper Anthony Jenson says the suspect hitchhiked away from his hidden vehicle and was let out near the scene of the crash. The suspect then gave the victim’s wallet to law enforcement and confessed to the crime.

The victim suffered fractures to the skull, road rash, a broken ankle, broken toe and a concussion.
