Thankfully, the victim was not seriously injured.
A bicyclist was injured in northwestern Clarke County Tuesday night, when a car ran him down, then two men and a teen in the car tried to rob him, Athens-Clarke police said.
The man ran away on Old Jefferson Road, and the would-be robbers sped off.
They were arrested soon after when officers stopped their car near Whitehead and Tallassee roads, according to police.
The same cannot be said, sadly, for many other Athenians in the past month.
