Police have appealed for witnesses of a “nasty and unprovoked” attack where a passenger travelling in a white van allegedly hit a female cyclist in her sixties with a stick.
The Hertfordshire Mercury reports that the incident occurred on Longcroft Road in Maple Cross at around 2.15pm on Monday, July 6.
A white van went past the woman and a man leaned out of the passenger window and struck her with a stick.
The woman was left with a red mark and bruising.
PC Christian Gottmann, who is investigating, said: “This was a nasty and unprovoked assault and I would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who has dash cam footage that is relevant to the enquiry.
“If you are able to help I can be contacted directly via email at christian.gottmann [at] herts.pnn.police.uk ”
