Shocking moment white cyclist rips anti-racist flyers from George Floyd activists before attacking one with his bike – The Sun

A VIDEO has captured the shocking moment a white cyclist ripped anti-racist flyers from George Floyd activists before attacking one of them with his bike.

Police are now looking for the man who attacked the protester on the Capital Crescent Trail in Maryland.

The anonymous demonstrators told NBC Washington that they were putting up posters in support of the George Floyd protests on Monday morning when they were approached by the cyclist.

In the footage, the man can be seen taking paper from one person and then, what appears to be, tape from a girl.

As people off-camera shout at the man to not touch the girl, the cyclist then turns his anger to the man recording the footage.

The attacker is then seen running with his bike toward the recorder, before allegedly running it into him.

The victim told NBC: "He sees me recording him and sees the fact that I recorded him as he was doing that, and he grabs his bike and he runs it into me and pins me to the ground.

He also told that the outlet that the man used profanity, called them deviants and said they were inciting riots.

Montgomery County Park Police are now asking for the public's assistance to identify the cyclist.

Brian Frosh, the Attorney General of Maryland, also tweeted: "If anyone can identify this man, please let me know (410-576-6300) and contact Montgomery County States Attorney John McCarthy."
