Incident happened last Friday on A11 between Wymondham and Attleborough

Police in Norfolk have appealed for witnesses to come forward after a man threw a bike at a car on the A11.

The incident happened last Friday 8 April 2016 at around 1pm, when a woman who was driving from Wymondham to Attleborough saw the man pushing the bike along the road.

According to police, she pulled out to pass him, but as she did so, he threw the bike at her, causing damage to her car. They added that while she wasn’t injured, she was left shocked by the incident.

The man is described as “white, in his 30s with shoulder length hair wearing a red long sleeved fleece and black cycling leggings.”

Anyone who saw the incident or the man pushing a bike along the A11 that day is asked to contact Sergeant Gary Hodges at Thetford Police Station on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
