An image has been released of someone police would like to speak to after a man was reportedly assaulted by a cyclist.

The victim was walking along a cycle path between Gregory Street and Grove Road, Lenton, when he narrowly avoided a collision with a man on a bike.

An argument then took place between the two, which resulted in the victim – a man in his late sixties – being pushed to the ground and punched repeatedly.

He had to be taken to hospital for treatment for facial injuries following the alleged assault, which happened at around 8.30pm on 3 September 2023.

The other man involved in the incident then reportedly made off on his bike towards Gregory Street following the attack.   

He is described as white, in his early twenties, and of stocky build, while he was wearing a peaked cap, as well as a dark coloured t-shirt and cycling shorts.

Officers investigating the assault have now shared an image of a man they’d like to speak to as part of their inquiries.

PC Curtis Widdowson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a completely unacceptable assault that left a man in his late sixties in hospital with facial injuries.

“While we acknowledge that this picture isn’t the clearest, there might be someone who recognises the man in it, or who thinks they saw someone dressed like this at the time of the incident.

“If that is you, we’d ask that you please get in touch with us, so that we can try and identify this man, who we believe could have important information that could assist our investigation.”

Information can be left with the police by calling 101, quoting incident 765 of 3 September 2023, while it can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
