A cyclist broke his arm after a teen “deliberately” jumped into his path on a Dundee road.
Police said the man was forced to slam on his brakes, and was sent flying over his handlebars before landing head-first on the ground, during the incident on Liff Road.
Officers say a teen boy, who was part of a group of about 20 youths, was responsible.
The incident took place on Monday, June 8 at about 9.15pm.
The youngster – who is described as white, about 15-years-old, skinny and dressed in a black gilet at the time – ran away following the incident.
The rest of the group, some of whom were on bicycles, also made off.
The cyclist was left with a broken arm and several cracked ribs.
