Another strange attack on biker in the U District

A man who seemed mentally ill pushed a cyclist off his bike near the 45th St viaduct, then hit him with an umbrella and ran away.

From SeattleCrime:

On November 9th, the victim in the incident told police he was riding his bike on 22nd and NE 45th around 8:15pm when another man approached him, shoved him off his bicycle, and then hit him with an umbrella

The suspect then fled east on 45th. The victim was not seriously injured.

When police arrived at the scene, the victim told them “the suspect seemed to be mentally ill” and had “jumped into moving traffic on purpose” as he fled.

One of the responding officers told the victim they wanted to see about having the suspect involuntarily committed for psychiatric care if they were able to locate him.

But they weren’t.

This is the second umbrella-on-bicycle attack in recent weeks. To follow our coverage of attacks on Seattle bikers, check out the Crime tag.
