Omaha, NE (AP) - Omaha police say a motorist was beaten after stopping at the scene of an accident in which a motorcyclist collided with his car.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 22-year-old Eric O. Sandoval, of Omaha, stopped Sunday night after a motorcycle operated by 26-year-old Daryll J. Woods Jr., struck his car.

Police says Sandoval stopped to help Woods but left for his home when a crowd formed and began threatening him. He then returned to the crash site and was attacked before police arrived.

Police say he suffered facial bruises.

Woods broke an arm and his left leg.

Police say they arrested two 30-year-old men. Both were charged with misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace. One also was charged with carrying a concealed weapon.
