NORTH BEND, Ore. – Two suspects were arrested in North Bend after police said they hit a man over the head in an attempt to steal his bike.

Michael McKinney, 21, and Richard Nolan, 34, both of North Bend were taken to the Coos County Jail and charged with second degree robbery, a Measure 11 felony.
