ACT Policing is investigating a series of collisions where a cyclist rode aggressively at several students, colliding with four pedestrians in Mawson on Friday 13 April.
The collisions occurred at approximately 9.30 am when a large group of students were taking part in a school cross-country event on a public shared path, near the ACT Healthy Waterways construction area on Athllon Drive.
The cyclist was heard yelling profanities towards the students before he allegedly swerved close to several of them. He then knocked one student to the ground, causing minor injuries, and came off his bike in the process.
After re-mounting, the cyclist proceeded to knock down a further three students, riding over the foot of one of them, causing him injuries.
The cyclist is described as of Caucasian appearance, approximately 25-30 years old, of thin build with a light/grey beard and a deep voice.
At the time the cyclist was wearing shorts, a grey singlet, a grey cap, with his clothing described as tattered or torn. He was riding a maroon-coloured mountain bike.
Police ask that anyone who witnessed this incident, or who has video footage, or who may be able to identify the cyclist, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
