Witness appeal for road rage cyclist who punched female passenger through moving car window
Police appeal for witnesses in Hertfordshire assault case
It’s a shocking incident involving a car occupant, a cyclist and a totally unjustified punch.
But this time it is a cyclist who struck a female car passenger through an open car window reports the Hertfordshire Mercury.
The incident happened on Tuesday July 12 at around 5pm in the Hertfordshire town of Stanstead Abbotts. A male cyclist wearing a white helmet, white cycling top with black stripe down the back, black shorts and riding a blue road bike is said to have struck the woman while the black Vauxhall Corsa in which she was a passenger was travelling along the town’s Roydon Road.
The cyclist, described as white, is said to have then thrown his bike to the ground before approaching the car. He then remounted and rode off in the direction of the High Street.
No other details of the incident are mentioned in the Mercury's report – we have contacted Hertfordshire police to see if they can provide further details.
The victim, a woman in her 20s from Ware, sustained minor injuries to her face as a result of the assault.
PC Kerry Read of the Hertfordshire Constabulary said: “This was a busy time of the day on the roads and I would appeal to anyone who witnessed this incident or who may be able to identify the offender, to contact me as soon as possible."
Anyone with information about the assault is urged to call Herts. Constabulary via their non-emergency number or call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, on 0800 555 111.
