Appeal following road rage attack in West Bromwich
Can you help find a driver who left a cyclist with a broken nose, cheekbone and thumb in a road rage attack in West Bromwich on Friday 8 May?
Detectives are asking for any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage of the assault at the junction of Bromford Lane and Credenda Road at about 4.30pm to get in touch.
It is alleged that a man in a silver Audi followed the cyclist and was verbally abusive before punching him in the face, knocking him from his bike.
The motorist is believed to have then driven away in the direction of Sandwell and Dudley Train Station.
The cyclist, a man in his 40s, who required hospital treatment for his injuries including an operation on his thumb, is now recovering at home.
Investigator Rebecca Kendall from Force CID, said: “This is a really nasty roadside assault which resulted in the cyclist suffering a number of broken bones.
"I’m asking people who may have been in the area at the time to think back and let us know if they remember seeing anything or even have dashcam footage which may help our enquiries."
The driver is described as Asian with short dark hair and a beard, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 6ft tall and well built.
