Police are investigating this unsettling incident reported by one of our readers.
“I was riding my bike home from work at 5:45 PM this past Wednesday, June 13th, when a car approached me from behind at a high rate of speed and someone leaned out of the passenger window and pushed me into the back of a parked car. I was pushed with enough force that I thought I had been hit by the car and a witness later told me what had happened. I broke my scapula and separated my shoulder bad enough to require surgery.
The car did not stop and no one attempted to rob me, so it appears this was done for fun. This happened on the 4600 block of Larchwood. Please get the word out there for cyclists to watch their backs.”
Police said that the vehicle involved in this incident is an older brown Buick LeSabre. The car fled west on Larchwood after the attack. Description of people in the car was not available.
