A 54-YEAR-OLD man was attacked by a cyclist after troubled flared in Lowestoft.

The man suffered bruising to his head and pain to his back after he was attacked in Blackheath Road around 12.20pm on Sunday, April 27.

The man was in his car with his wife, driving along the road, when they spotted a man riding his bike along the middle of the road. To allow the cyclist to pass he slowed to a stop near the Green Drive junction but the cyclist rode his bike into the car, then jumped off the cycle and approached the 54-year-old, who got out of the vehicle to see if was OK.

The 54-year-old was then assaulted. His wife called for help and three people came to their assistance. The attacker then disappeared.

He is white, about 6ft tall, of average build, around 20-30 years old, with short dark hair and wearing dark sunglasses, a white T-shirt with a pattern on it and riding a bike that had blue on the centre part of the frame. He also may have had bags of shopping on the handlebars.

Police would like to speak to anyone who saw the incident or who has information about the offender.

A man meeting this description was also seen in Blackheath Woods just after the incident and police are seeking witnesses.
