Cyclist pulled from his bike and attacked in Aberdeen

Police have appealed for witnesses after a cyclist was pulled from his bike by a man and attacked.

The cyclist was on his way home from work at about 18:30 on 2 July when he was assaulted on the Holburn Street footbridge in Aberdeen.

His attacker was described as being in his 30s, about 5ft 8in, of stocky build with short brown hair. He was wearing a blue T-shirt and black shorts.

The man was with a blonde-haired woman and they were walking two dogs.

One of the dogs is believed to have been a Jack Russell while the other was a slighter larger dog.

PC Sean Gulland said: "This was an unprovoked attack on an innocent member of the public and we are extremely keen to identify the person responsible as soon as possible."
