JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Police in north Florida say two bicyclists are hospitalized after being stabbed by a motorist.

Sgt. Robert Hurst of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says the bicyclists got into a confrontation with the driver, who then followed them into a parking lot of the Florida State College at Jacksonville.

Witnesses told police that the driver stabbed the two cyclists just before 11 a.m. Monday. The driver fled the scene but was arrested a short time later. Hurst says the driver will be charged with aggravated battery.

The driver also was hospitalized with injuries to his face.

The bicyclists were among more than 100 riders participating in an annual Memorial Day bike ride
