Ponytailed cyclist punches teen in Fareham

Daily Echo: Teen punched by cyclist Teen punched by cyclist

A CAR passenger has been punched in the face in Fareham after he confronted a cyclist.

The 18-year-old victim was travelling in his friend’s Peugeot 106, when they came across someone cycling in the middle of the road near the St Margaret roundabout.

They shouted at the cyclist to move over and as they pulled up at the roundabout the cyclist caught up with them and banged on the passenger window.

The window smashed and the cyclist, described as aged around 45 with stubble and a long brown ponytail, punched the teenager and caused his nose to bleed.

The cyclist was wearing a red lycra cycling top, with a white or silver helmet and black fingerless gloves at the time of the attack, at 5pm on Thursday, October 18.

PC Tina Abrams of Fareham police said: “This incident appears to be an unprovoked attack on a teenager and his friend’s car which has left both feeling shaken.

“I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident, or who recognises the distinctive description of the cyclist.”

Anyone with information should call PC Abrams on 101.

He'd also have to have coincidentally done it to someone else matching the exact description of his other victim, in the exact same type of car, in the same place. At the same time. On the same day.

I think we can safely say this is the same incident.

Hey, that's clever, I see what you did there, bypassed the sardonic elements of my statement and came right back at me with a literal retort. Genius!
