Following yesterday’s story about a driver who tried to attack a biker with a Taser in Northgate comes this report from Jonah at Seattle Crime:
In this most recent incident, a cyclist was riding north on Eastlake Ave E past Hamlin St around 6:30 p.m. on October 20t, and saw a woman standing next to a parked car on the street.
The woman was “acting weird” and “appeared to be using the car as a shield or barrier between her and the moving traffic,” according to a police report.
As the victim rode past the woman, she swung a golf club at the cyclist, striking him in the arm.
The woman never spoke a word during the attack, and calmly walked away after the incident.
The cyclist called police, but officers were unable to find the woman.
The cyclist was not seriously injured.
There was a post in the cascade bike forum a few weeks ago about a woman matching this description on eastlake charging a cyclist and car. Probably the same person.
Another good reason to wear a helmet I suppose. Maybe we should add full face shields and body armor to the required cyclist safety gear?
I accidentally stumbled on this post. Me and another cyclist were attacked by this person about a month ago. I followed her and know where she lives. We called police 3 times and waited nearly an hour but they did not come. I’ve been waiting for her to attack and injure someone else. Please feel free to contact me about this.
