INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police in southern Indiana are searching for two people who were in a car that struck a woman, knocking her unconscious, and dragged a man during a protest over the assault of a Black man by a group of white men.

Police Cpt. Ryan Pedigo told The Associated Press Tuesday that the collision happened Monday evening in downtown Bloomington.

Pedigo says the 29-year-old woman was knocked unconscious and taken to a hospital with a cut to her head.

The man who was dragged suffered scrapes.

The protesters were demanding arrests in the assault on Vauhxx Booker at Lake Monroe over the July Fourth weekend.
