A young male is in custody after a cyclist was intentionally struck by a car on Ridge Road during the high school lunch break Wednesday morning.

The approximately 20-year-old male was struck on the main street of downtown Ridgeway in front of the ice cream shop near Dominion Road.

The victim was carried on the hood of the car, rolled over the roof then fell to the road when the driver hit the brakes about 150 metres away.

He was not seriously injured and was treated by EMS personnel for minor injuries at the scene.

Police say the two knew each other.

A witness said the car was moving fast and that a female passenger was in the back seat.

The driver has been charged with assault with a weapon, dangerous driving and breach of probation.

Witnesses are urged to call investigators at 905-871-2300 extension 2300.
