GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A woman told Gainesville police a man who fell of his bike tried to rob her. Now, authorities are looking for the man seen wearing fingerless gloves, like the ones used by cyclists.

The Gainesville Sun reports the woman told police she was in her car when she saw a man fall from his bike Friday night. She got out of her car to help and that's when she says the man tried to rob her of jewelry and other belongings. She fought back and got in her car to chase after him.

He got away, but the unidentified woman had minor cuts to her arms and stomach from the scuffle.
