Police: Man tries to get attention of loud motorcyclist – driver hits him, flees

The motorcycle had been speeding up and down the street.

A man who tried to get the attention of a motorcyclist who had been loudly speeding up and down the street ended up with a leg injury – after the motorcyclist hit him and drove off.

The incident happened around 10:30 p.m. Saturday on the 2400 block of 19th Ave. in North St. Paul, police said in a Facebook post Sunday. According to police, the motorcycle was driving fast, back and forth down the street, making a lot of noise.

Someone nearby went to try to flag down the loud motorcyclist, and stepped into the street. But the motorcyclist didn't stop, and ended up driving over him.

The motorcyclist then flagged down another person who was walking in the area, and told him to give medical attention to the man he'd just hit. When the person ran to help the man, the motorcyclist fled.

The man who was hit suffered a possible broken leg.

Now police are looking for the public's help to identify the motorcyclist, who is described as being a white man who is approximately 30-40 years old, with a witness describing the motorcycle as a "Harley Davidson type."

The suspect was also with a white female passenger around 30-40 years old, police said.

If anyone has any information about the suspect or the incident, they're asked to call 911.
