A cyclist’s face was slashed in an attempted robbery.
The man was cycling along the Black Path, which runs near North Lynn’s Loke Road, on Monday evening when two men jumped from behind the bushes.
One grabbed the handlebars while the other demanded his wallet and phone. But when he tried to cycle away they struck him with a sharp weapon, suspected to be broken glass and suffered superficial slashes but did not hand over his wallet. The men had Eastern European accents and wore jeans and hooded sweatshirts.
