Surrey Police have launched a witness appeal after a cyclist was pushed off his bike by a car passenger  in Redhill last week.

The cyclist, a 49-year-old male, suffered a fractured shoulder in the incident at around 7.30pm on Wednesday 28 September.

He was also left with cuts and bruises on his arm, leg and hip after the passenger leant out of the vehicle, believed to be a Mini, and pushed the bike’s handlebars.

The car was said to have been driven off in the direction of the police station after the incident.

Detective Constable Errol Chetty commented: “We are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident or who may be able to identify the occupants of the car.

“Equally, I would urge the driver or passengers to get in touch themselves and give their side of the story.”

Or maybe its a very non-threatening, "Do come into the station and tell us how the naughty cyclist upset you" and then as soon as they do its a Life Of Brian "You're fucking nicked, me old beauty!"

Come on. You have to presume innocence first. Harold Shipman and Fred West were also asked to give 'their side of the story' so it's only fair. : )

I can hear it now. "I was tired - after a long afternoon smoking split, drinking Red Bull and chucking the cans out of the window -and just happened to be be yawning and stretching with the window open."

Case closed.

I bet everyone loved the guy who caused this, I cycled through the tail back, I was the fastest thing on the road. It really does amaze me, Guildford town centre like every other town centre has loads of cctv, and they can't trace the car, hmmmm.
