A Davenport man was arrested for assault after police said he struck a bicyclist with his van Thursday night and then threw the bicycle down on the victim.
DeAnthony S. Patrick, 37, was released Friday night from the Scott County Jail, charged with an aggravated misdemeanor.
Patrick was speeding eastbound in the 700 block of East 13th Street when he ran the stop sign at Arlington Avenue, swerved and struck a male victim riding his bicycle on the north side of the street, according to the arrest affidavit.
Patrick then backed the van up to where the victim was on the ground, got out of the vehicle and approached the victim, the affidavit says.
The victim thought Patrick was going to help him when he saw him get out of the van, the affidavit says. Instead, Patrick picked up the broken bicycle and threw it back down on the victim, the affidavit says.
Patrick then punched the victim in the face, kicked him once and drove off, the affidavit says.
The victim suffered injuries to his face and right knee and was treated at the scene, the affidavit says.
