A man who stopped to help two women with a car that initially appeared to be disabled ended up losing his car and getting struck in the process, Wichita police said Thursday.

Lt. Doug Nolte gave this account: The 27-year-old man was on his way to a convenience store around 11:40 p.m. Wednesday when he saw a car that appeared to be stuck at 23rd Street North and Arkansas.

But while he was trying to help, one of women got into his 2002 white Jeep Grand Cherokee, with an Oklahoma tag, and drove off, striking him and knocking him down but not seriously injuring him. The other woman drove away in the suspects’ vehicle, described as a black Chevrolet Monte Carlo with a Dallas Cowboys vanity tag on the front.
