Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in relation to an assault

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in relation to an assault that occurred in Halifax last month.​

On June 12 at approximately 3:30 p.m. police were called to an assault that had just occurred in the area of Purcells Cove Road and Williams Lake Road in Halifax. A female motorist had passed two cyclists just prior to the intersection, and when she stopped, one of the male cyclists came up to the driver’s side, yelled at her and then struck her in the face with an open hand.

The cyclist is described as a white male in his 40s or 50s with a slim build and light coloured short hair. At the time of the incident, both cyclists were wearing green bike helmets and cycling attire and were riding road racing style bicycles.

Police are asking the cyclists or anyone who has any information on this incident to contact police by calling 902-490-5020. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or using the P3 Tips App.
