Driver attacks cyclist with baseball bat

The bicyclist, a 50-year-old resident, reported a female driver in a green Lexus almost struck him as he rode in the street near Prairie Path Lane and Berkley Avenue at 3 p.m. Sunday. The bicyclist told the police he caught up to the car at a stop sign and asked the driver, "What's your problem?"

The man said the woman driver got out of her car with a baseball bat and hit him once and struck his bicycle several times.

A witness called the police and reported a motorist was beating a bicyclist with a baseball bat, police officials said.
