- Manchester bike assault – Get your deerstalkers on!
So I just nipped out on to Oxford St in Manchester to meet my gf for a coffee.
At 12:10 by Portalnd buildings/McDonald’s a female cyclist and a black 62 plate fiesta were having a bit of verbal which culminated in the driver reaching out of his car and punching the cyclist on the hatched markings, then he sped off and the cyclist went on her way before my gf could stop her for a bit of witness action.
If you recognise the cyclist or hear about anyone getting punched by a car drive let me know!
We’ve reported it to the police already and they’re trying to track the cyclist down as well.
Picture of the car and cyclist.

The police won’t act unless there is a complaint made by either party, or there is sufficient evidence to suggest any unlawful act has taken place. Hopefully the cyclist will make a complaint, and then you and your girlfiredn will be able to act as witnesses to the assault. Good on you for reporting it.Posted 5 years agoBunnyhopSubscriber
I was verbally abused by a driver in a ford focus trying to turn right on a busy road in Stockport a few years ago, luckily I had several witnesses, otherwise I’m pretty sure the idiot would have tried to punch my lights out and knock me off my bike.
Glad your gf reported it scaled, hope they find the tosser.Posted 5 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber

Are photos and a witness statement not enough? I thought that if a crime was reported the police had to investigate, and then it’s up to the CPS whether to prosecute. Only because there was an incident in the local paper recently, where one guy assaulted another with an iron bar, but the guy who was assaulted said he didn’t want to press charges and instead would sort it out in his own way……Posted 5 years ago
