Police search for cyclists who assaulted Calgary man

CALGARY – Police are searching for two cyclists who attacked a man in the city’s southwest on Tuesday.

It happened around 8 p.m. in the 1700 block of 24th Street S.W.

Police say the victim, a man in his 60’s, was walking southbound when he was bumped by the passing cyclists, leading to a short argument.

At one point, the cyclists got off their bikes and assaulted the victim, who suffered non life-threatening head injuries.

The man’s son says he is stunned by the attack.

“To throw an elderly man into the street – that’s really irresponsible and ridiculous,” says Fareed Rawji. “It’s very upsetting.”

The male suspect is described as 5’8”- 6’1” tall with short brown hair, black sandals, grey and black knee length shorts, no shirt, carrying a black backpack and was riding a dark black/green full suspension mountain bike.

The female suspect is described as 5’4” – 5’11” tall, wearing a blue sleeveless shirt, multi-colored skirt, yellow and black hat, pink/blue and black running shoes, pushing a grey front suspension mountain bike.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers.
