Police are seeking to identify a bicyclist described as attacking a pedestrian – a bike-rage incident that took place after they crossed paths by Cambridge Common.

The incident took place at around 5:45 p.m. Nov. 15 at Concord Avenue and Waterhouse Street, when a Cambridge resident using a crosswalk was just missed by a bicyclist coming from the common, police said, citing information provided by the pedestrian.

When she called after him to watch where he was going, he circled back and hit her arms and legs before heading down Concord Avenue toward Garden Street, police said. “The bicyclist reportedly drove his bike at and into the pedestrian/victim,” said Jeremy Warnick, director of communications and media relations for Cambridge police, in a Wednesday email.

The rider was described as a white man about 50 years old wearing a navy fleece. He wore no helmet and his bike had no lights, according to the pedestrian and video that police found from the area.

An investigation so far has not found the bicyclist. Anyone with information about the Nov. 15 incident is asked to call (617) 349-3300 or make contact anonymously.
