Police are appealing for information after a 47-year-old cyclist was attacked in Barking.
Officers were called to a grocery store in Ripple Road at about 6pm on Sunday October 4, to reports the man had been punched in the face.
As the victim was riding his bicycle along Ripple Street, the suspect drove past in a silver Audi A4, narrowly missing the man before parking outside the shop.
As the motorist got out of his vehicle, the bike-rider approached him and asked why he was driving in such a way before the driver went in to the shop.
The cyclist then remained outside to continue the conversation, but the other man punched him three times in the face as he left the store, knocking him to the floor.
