Default Man lunges with knife at cyclists 'after they asked him to move toone side on canal path'

A knifeman who lunged towards two cyclists in an angry confrontation
beside the Regent’s Canal is being hunted by police.

Shocking mobile phone footage taken by the victim shows the suspect pull
a knife from his pocket before rushing at the couple, who were enjoying
a cycle ride together.

The victim, an estate agent from Brixton, said the angry clash came
about after he asked the man to move to one side to let them pass by.

The victim, who asked not to be named, said the man "just flipped out"
in the attack near London Zoo on August 12.

Knife attack: The angry clash occurred after the man was asked to move
to one side to let them pass by, the victim said
He told the Standard: “Me and my girlfriend were cycling on the
left-hand-side, and other cyclists were coming towards us from the other
way.

“He was in the way and just wasn’t going to move, so I told him that it
was left-hand-side traffic. Then he just flipped out.”

The victim managed to film the incident on his phone, but he said in the
panic it was left on mute.

“He pulled out an envelope from his pocket after shouting at me. It had
a knife in it. Then he started launching at me with it.

“I threw my Boris bike at him to protect myself.”

He added: “I didn’t run and we wasn’t scared. Maybe that’s my
stupidity... but I want him to be caught and wanted to get a photo of him.”

"He shouted this is my neighbourhood... I rule the neighbourhood” after
he was asked to move.

He added: “There were lots of people around, and some called the police.
He disappeared just before the police arrived.”

No one was injured.

The suspect made off towards Lisson Green Estate, Scotland Yard has
said. Officers are appealing for information.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "The two victims, a man and a
woman, were cycling along the tow path when the woman got into an
argument with the suspect who had come from in the opposite direction.

"The suspect then pulled a knife from his pocket and threatened the
victims, swinging at them with the knife."

The grammar says it all about the cowardly, low life, thick as four short
planks cyclist.
I would not give a cyclist a drink of water in the desert.

The cyclists started it by asking him to move. Who cares what side you pass on?

More proof that pedestrians need to wear number plates and have compulsory 3rd party insurance.

Compulsory pedestrian helmets wouldn't go amiss.

Helmets are for learners. Once you know how to ride a bike, drive a car,
etc, you don't require a helmet or seatbelt.


For idiots and sociopaths like you it should ALWAYS be obligatory to wear a
number plate around their necks, Birdbrain, so you can easily get tracked
down whenever your mental sickness makes you act up.
