Police search for Mercedes driver after cyclist knocked off bike and injured in Bungay's Market Place following dispute




A cyclist was knocked off his bike when a motorist drove at him in Bungay last week, prompting police to appeal for information.

Officers said the incident happened between 7pm and 7.30pm on Thursday in Market Place following a dispute between the cyclist and the driver.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said the victim, a man in his 20s, was cycling along Trinity Street when he was cut-up by a car outside Wightman's shop.

The cyclist then caught the motorist up in Market Place and 'remonstrated' with him about the incident.

The motorist is then said to have driven his car - described as a black, soft-top convertible, believed to have been a three-door Mercedes - into the cyclist, knocking him off his bike, before driving away.

The cyclist suffered elbow, knee and hand injuries in the incident.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 40s or 50s, of heavy build.
