Witness appeal as road rage assault leaves cyclist with broken arm

Occupants of silver BMW sought by South Gloucestershire Police

Avon & Somerset Constabulary have appealed for witnesses to an assault in Yate, South Gloucestershire, that left a cyclist with a broken arm.

According to police, the incident took place in the town, 12 miles northeast of Bristol, at around 10pm on Saturday 8 June.

The witness appeal continued: “The victim, a man in his 50s, was cycling past Tesco Express on Station Road when he was involved in an incident with two people in a silver BMW.

“The victim turned into Cranleigh Gardens where the occupants of the car followed him, pulled him off his bike and assaulted him. They then drove off leaving him on the floor with a broken arm.

“The occupants of the silver BMW were a man and woman in their 20s.”

Police say that they have opened an investigation into the assault after it was reported to them and have asked anyone with information to contact DC Celia White by calling 101 and quoting 55000/13.
