CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) – Police in the southeast Missouri town of Cape Girardeau say two men accused of driving into a group of joggers likened it to playing a video game.

Three joggers suffered bumps and bruises Sunday morning when they were struck by a car. Police believe it was intentional.

The suspects, 19-year-old Vincent Anderson of Little Rock, Ark., and 27-year-old Marcus Jones of Cotton Plant, Ark., are both jailed. Police say Anderson was driving a 1994 Ford Thunderbird that was reported stolen moments before the joggers were struck.

The Southeast Missourian reports that according to a probable cause statement, cellphone videos found with the suspects indicated they thought the experience was “fun” and likened it to the video game “Grand Theft Auto.”
