TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Police say a bicycle rider was intentionally hit by a pickup truck in downtown Topeka by a driver who didn’t stop.

The bicycle rider told police he was riding on the sidewalk Thursday when the truck drove over a curb and hit him on purpose. Police say the victim knew the truck driver.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the incident happened after an apparent disturbance at the Let’s Help soup kitchen. Police said someone may have pulled a knife during the disturbance but no one was injured.

Police Officer Brian Mooney said the bicycle rider was “banged up” but he refused medical treatment.
