Around 8.50pm, a woman was cycling along the bike path adjacent to William Slim Drive when her bike was hit from behind by a male cyclist. She fell to the ground and was dragged into nearby grassland by a man.
A male cyclist riding along the path heard the struggle and stopped to provide assistance to the woman. She was taken to Calvary Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the incident.
The man was last seen riding towards Belconnen on a dark-coloured BMX style bike.
He is described as having a dark complexion, approximately 183 (6’) tall with a solid build, dark-coloured hair and aged between 20 – 30 years old. He was wearing a blue coloured T-shirt and knee-length black shorts.
