Dorset Police have confirmed that no charges will be pressed against a female cyclist who was allegedly involved in an altercation with a woman driving a car in Poole before Christmas in which she was reported to have threatened to stab the motorist.
In December, officers launched a witness appeal which resulted in the bike rider coming forward.
> Cyclist alleged to have made stab threats to driver who suspected she was going to run red light
During the incident, which took place at around 8.50am on the morning of Thursday 7 December, the cyclist was said to have been challenged by the motorist, who was driving a Honda CRV, and who believed the rider was about to go through a red traffic light.
The cyclist was alleged to have "verbally abused the woman, kicked and punched the car, attempted to rip the wing mirror off and then opened the passenger door and slammed it shut."
Once the lights turned green and the motorist stopped to check her car, it was claimed that the cyclist approached her "and again became abusive, produced a small pointed item from a compartment on the bike and threatened to stab the woman.
"She also reportedly rammed her bike into the victim," police added.
However,. Dorset Police last week confirmed that the case is closed with no charges pending.
In an update on their website, they said: "Following a photo appeal, a woman came forward to assist officers with the investigation.
"As a result of an investigation the decision has been made that no charges will be brought and no further police action will be taken."
