At approximately 12pm on Saturday a man in his thirties and his six year-old daughter were cycling along a redway in Oldbrook.

When they crossed Studwick Drive by the Christian Community Centre, a light blue car stopped and a verbal altercation took place between the motorist and the male cyclist. The cyclist was then assaulted with a piece of wood. He sustained a cut to the top of his head.

Members of the public stopped at the scene to assist and the offender then drove off.
