The attack took place after the assailant alighted from the car, approached the passing cyclist and then assaulted him. As a result the cyclist, a 27 year old man received injuries to his nose as a result however did not require medical attention.

Constable Lee-Ann Hawker at Dumfries said “this appears to have been a completely unprovoked attack on a lone cyclist in the town and we at a loss to understand why. Anyone who may have been in the area of Brooms Road/Cumberland Street around this time and who can help identify the car driver, who is described as being male, 20/25 years, big build with a spotty complexion, a slight beard or unshaven and short ginger hair, is asked to call us at Dumfries in the 101 number. The car is thought to be a three door, black coloured Ford Fiesta with darkened windows and was last seen travelling up Cumberland Street.”
