A Cyclist Has Attacked Two People In Lowestoft

A cyclist has assaulted a teenage boy and an elderly woman in two separate attacks in Lowestoft.

Both attacks happened at a similar time on Tuesday evening.

The first victim was an 18-year-old male who was riding his bike down an alley behind Pier Terrace when he saw a man cycling towards him.

As the man got closer, he kicked the teenager off his bike and punched him in the face as he stood up. He was then punched a second time in the face and the man headbutted him.

This has been linked to the second attack which took place on High Street.

A 62-year-old woman was walking down the road when a cyclist riding on the path slapped her across the face, causing her to have a bloody nose.

The cyclist then rode off towards Yarmouth Road.

The teenager described the man as white, around 6ft tall, of medium build, with short dark brown hair, with a slight scar on the left cheek.  He was described as wearing a royal blue t-shirt, with black tracksuit bottoms, white or yellow trainers and riding an old green mountain bike.

The woman described him as a white male, aged in his twenties, of medium build and wearing a blue top.

Anyone that may have seen either attack or that recognises the description is asked to contact PC Dean Brearley at Lowestoft Police Station on 101 quoting reference LO/14/3261, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
