Police are asking for public assistance in identifying a cyclist who slapped a driver in the face at a Halifax intersection last month.
According to a Halifax Regional Police news release, officers responded to a report of an assault at the intersection of Purcells Cove and Williams Lake roads June 12 at about 3:30 p.m.
A female motorist had passed two cyclists just prior to the intersection, police said. When she stopped, one of the male cyclists came up to the driver’s side window, yelled at her and struck her in the face with an open hand.
The cyclist who slapped the driver is described as white, in his 40s or 50s, with a slim build and light-coloured short hair. Both cyclists were wearing green bike helmets and cycling attire and were riding road-racing bicycles.
Police would like the cyclists or anyone with information about the incident to contact them by calling 902-490-5020 or submitting an anonymous tip to Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers.
