Man Attacked With Car After Trying To Break Up Fight

An Omaha man is wondering if doing the right thing wasn't the best idea.

After seeing a couple violently arguing in a parking lot, Marc Ouedrago became a target.

A man ended up attacking Ouedrago with his car.

Ouedrago is ok, but doesn't understand how it got that far.

Ouedrago was leaving the DMV near 50th and G Streets when he saw a couple violently arguing in the parking lot.

“I saw them arguing, so the gentleman was kind of opening his door, and beating the car of the lady," he says.

Ouedrago went to try to break up the fight, but says things got worse.

He says the woman drove off, and then the man came after him with his car.

“He backs up, and then again, he came forward, and this is when he just ran over me,” says Ouedrago.

The man drove away.

Ouedrago is ok, but did suffer scrapes and bruises to his shins.

More than anything, he's trying to understand how it escalated so far, and so fast.

“It doesn't really make a lot of sense to me, because to me, there is no need, or no explanation for what he did,” Ouedrago says.

Ouedrago says he did have to visit the doctor after the attack, and has been left with some bills.

Police don't have any suspects at this time.
