Cyclist’s worry over increase in attacks
Police are investigating after a 37-year-old man was assaulted while cycling in the Corbiehill area at around 6.30pm on Tuesday
It is understood he passed a group of around 30 youths and then became involved in a dispute with them before he was struck in the face. Another cyclist, who asked not to be named, said he had stopped to offer the man help after the attack.
He said: “There is a growing number of incidents involving unruly behaviour towards cyclists.”
A police spokesman said: “Inquiries are ongoing to trace the suspect, who is described as white, 15 years old and wearing a hooded top with a scarf covering his face.”
