A female cyclist miraculously escaped harmed after a man pushed her into oncoming traffic during rush hour
Helmet camera still of the man who allegedly attacked a female cyclist in Whitechapel
The cyclist politely warned the suspect – described as being in his 40s and wearing dark clothing – not to cross the road in Whitechapel until she had passed safely.
But the man reacted by swearing at her and chasing her down the street.
As she slowed down near a junction he shouted at her again before pushing her off her bike – straight into the path of passing traffic.
The woman was “fortunate” to get out of the road before being hit by any vehicle, Scotland Yard said.
She did not require medical treatment but was “very upset” following the incident.
The victim was able to contact police and download the footage of the incident recorded on her helmet camera.
Police have now released a picture of the man who attacked her on Friday 1 May.
