ST. LOUIS — A man has been arrested after ramming his vehicle into the back of a horse-drawn carriage downtown on Saturday evening.

Police responded to a call for an assault at 8:40 p.m. at Ninth and Olive streets and learned that the 37-year-old man rammed his pickup truck into the back of the carriage several times, causing the carriage to hit the horse. 

The horse sustained a scratch on its leg but was otherwise fine and able to walk, Public Safety Director Dan Isom said. Otherwise, no one was injured.

Isom characterized the ramming of the carriage as purposeful.

The man fled the scene, but was found at 11th and Locust streets and arrested. Police planned to apply for warrants with the Circuit Attorney's Office for three counts of second-degree assault and one count of animal abuse. 

The Post-Dispatch is not naming the suspect since he has not been charged yet.
