Police hunt cyclist who assaulted pregnant woman in Thornton Heath
Police are hunting a cyclist who assaulted a pregnant woman and her partner in Thornton Heath.
The incident happened on London Road, close to Thornton Heath Ponds roundabout, at about 9.15pm on July 1.
The couple who are in their 20s, were crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing near to Barclays Bank, when a cyclist is said to have cycled through the red light.
The woman shouted at the cyclist who allegedly stopped, turned around and assaulted both victims.
The woman said she was pregnant, but the suspect continued to assault her and her partner.
He is then believed to have got back on his bike and cycled off towards Norbury.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, approximately 6ft 2in tall with short blond hair.
PC Barry Standen from Croydon CID said: "I am appealing for anyone who might have seen this incident or who may know who this cyclist is to contact us and help us to progress our investigation.
"The suspect has assaulted a pregnant woman and her partner. Fortunately there seems to have been no injury to the unborn baby, but we're determined to find the person responsible for this assault.
"Through our enquires so far, we've not been able to identify the suspect, but by releasing this image we're hoping someone might recognise him or it might jog somebody's memory."
Anyone with information should contact Croydon CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
