Police are appealing to find witnesses to an incident which saw a teenager pushed off his bike by the passenger in a passing car in North Wales last week.
The boy was riding along Pant Hill in Rhos, near Wrexham, at around 7.20pm on Friday December 4th when he was grabbed from a dark coloured hatchback.
He lost his balance and fell off, suffering grazes.
Police are especially keen to speak to a woman who helped the cyclist after his fall.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting crime reference RC15185333.
In this unrelated video, published by the Belfast Telegraph in April this year, a man can be seen pushing a cyclist from the passenger window of a passing car.
The cyclist falls into a ditch, to the evident glee of the car’s inhabitants.
Cycling Ireland’s CEO Geoff Liffey told the newspaper at the time: ”There has also been attempts to disrupt cycling events and regular cycling paths by introducing serious hazards on these routes.
"Many of these attacks are of a very serious nature and we would advise any persons who experience or witnesses these attacks to report them to the relevant authorities in the area.
"This incident was a disturbing, cowardly and deliberate attack on a vulnerable cyclist. This kind of behaviour is nothing new, but it's becoming more prevalent."
Yep. Low % cycling and active travel countries like the UK can get much more benefit from "more cycling / less driving" regardless of headgear. ...
I'm more concerned this is one of the traffic cops, ie specifically trained police drivers, not your average cop in a car....
