London police released a video of a shocking road rage last month in which a cyclist violently rode a pedestrian after turning on a red light.
The assault, captured by the CCTV, took place in Farringdon Street on August 22nd at approximately 1.45pm. The City of London police released the video on Tuesday in an appeal to the public to help them identify the attacker.
In the video, the victim can be seen walking across the street when the cyclist crosses a red light and almost collides with him. The couple exchanges words first and the cyclist gets off the bike and returns to the man.
They stand nose to nose for a moment before the cyclist violently bites his head and pushes him back. The victim falls to the ground and lands heavily on his outstretched arm.
The 57-year-old man needed stitches in a wound over his eye and suffered damage to the ligaments in his arm where he fell, according to police.
"We ask the public to help us identify this cyclist, whose unnecessarily violent actions have left an audience member with some nasty injuries," police officer Fisk said in a statement.
"If anyone has any information on the man who carried out this assault, please contact us. He is described as a white man in his 40s, about 5 feet 10, of medium build, with short and graying hair."
