Police have charged a 49-year-old man after he allegedly used his four-wheel drive to deliberately run over a cyclist in Perth's northern suburbs.

It is alleged Jason Peter William Reah got into a fight with the 18-year-old Noranda man who was with friends at a shopping centre in Girrawheen, on Marangaroo Drive and Templeton Avenue, about 7:30pm last night.

Police said Mr Reah then began to drive his vehicle towards the younger man, prompting him to ride through the car park on a bicycle to try to escape.
