The unprovoked attack happened at around 2.30pm on Saturday (March
21) when a man in his 30s had been cycling along Belmont Avenue.

Police said the cyclist was confronted by a group of approximately
four men, who gave chase and struck him several times on the head.

The gang fled towards Central Drive, leaving the man bleeding in
the street from 'slash-type' injuries. Lancashire Police have not
confirmed whether a knife was involved in the attack.

The victim was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital and required a
number of stitches.

One of the offenders is described as Asian, aged in his mid-20s,
around 6ft tall, of skinny build, with short dark hair and a thin
designer-style beard with a goatee.

He had been wearing a black puffer-style jacket, a navy blue jumper
with white a t-shirt underneath and grey Adidas jogging bottoms
with white vertical stripes on the outer leg. The victim said the
man had spoken with a Manchester accent.

The cyclist was unable to provide descriptions of the rest of the
group. "We are now determined to find out who was responsible and
are asking anybody with information about who the men may be to get
in touch with us as soon as possible.

"Perhaps you were in the area and saw something suspicious, or
maybe you recognise the description the victim has given. Either
way, we would like to hear from you."

Anybody with information is asked to get in touch with Lancashire
Police on 101, quoting log 867 of March 21.


If only pedestrians had number plates. I am sure Pounder will agree.

Belmont Avenue is a Asian/drug infested ********. It is only fit for
cyclists to live there.

Does your bigotry extend to all Asians, Asian cyclists, Asian drug
users or only Asian cycling drug users?

I know the area and the street. You don't. So, shut the **** up.

How do you know what area or streets I know?
