Police hunting cyclist who knocked out a pedestrian after being told he shouldn’t ride on the pavement

A fuming cyclist knocked out a pedestrian after being told he shouldn’t ride on the pavement on a Boris Bike.

A 26-year-old man was walking down a posh street when the suspect, who was riding a Santander hire bike, told him to move out of the way.

When the victim told him he shouldn’t be on the pavement, the cyclist got off the bike and punched the man, knocking him unconscious.

The victim was taken to hospital with facial injuries.

The suspect is described as black, aged in his mid-20s to early 30s and at least 6ft tall.

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the assault, which happened at about 10pm on June 28 in posh Belgravia, central London.
