A man was slightly injured late Friday when his girlfriend tried to run him over with her car, police said.
The 22-year-old victim told police his 20-year-old girlfriend had two children in the car with her when she drove the vehicle at him in the 2000 block of East 11th Street, said Sgt. John Hoofer. It happened at about 10:10 p.m.
The man was able to get out of the way for the most part, Hoofer said, but still received some minor injuries.
The woman and children were taken into police custody.
