Belleville police are looking for a cyclist involved in a hit-and-run that sent a senior to hospital Friday evening.

Police say the 65-year-old woman was walking on a sidewalk near 59 North Front St. when she was struck by a bicycle around 9:30 p.m.

The woman was physically injured and needed to be taken to Belleville General Hospital, police said in a Monday release.

The cyclist fled the area, investigators say.

The suspect on the bike is described as wearing dark clothing and possibly having “salt-and-pepper” coloured hair.
