Assaulted On The Flying Nun, Christchurch

Postby jordy on Sun 8/Apr/12 10:56pm

I would like help identifying the assailant. I don't want to start a witch hunt, just find this guys name so I can give it to the police. If anyone recognises him and can give me some info that would be greatly appreciated. A PM might be the best bet.

Video: http://youtu.be/gHX33Psbt20?hd=1
Full video (by request): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPLYStAuZt0
Photo of him when he came back to plead for me to delete the video: http://i.imgur.com/CZfJF.jpg
Here's a screen grab of his face http://i.imgur.com/JsOa1.jpg

I started out by me asking him to let me past on the track. He kept saying yes but wouldn't give me a space. He was holding me up pretty badly. Trail etiquette says you pull over to let faster riders by.

I was polite at first, but then got less polite as he refused to stop, but I certainly wasn't asking to be attacked. I never swore or abused him, just basically said he was inconsiderate. I can upload the entire video if anyone doesn't believe me.

At the end of the track I told him he was rude for not letting me past, that set him off. You can see how it unfolded in the video. He tried to strangle me with my helmet while he was trying to steal my camera, and when I started yelling for help he put his hand over my nose and mouth. It was like he'd done it before. I was getting pretty fearful for my life by that stage so I did the only thing I could do without letting go of the camera, bit down on his finger. That got his hand away. After a bit more struggling I managed to get up to the road where I yelled for help, another cyclist came over. The assailant started say I was assaulting him, and the cyclist seemed to be taking his side. I got my stuff and got the fuck outta there.

I rolled down the road and spoke to a couple other guys at the car park, they said I should ring the police, so I got my phone out and that's when the guy showed up again, so that's when I took a photo. He was still after my camera/me to delete the video, but that wasn't gonna happen. He then tried to get the other two guys I was with to turn on me, by saying I assaulted him and showing them his finger. I was just like, if you didn't assault me, what was your finger doing in my mouth.

At some point along the way he'd managed to stop the video from recording, so that's why the video stops part way through. There was probably about three times longer of him attacking me.

So that's the story. If anyone can identify him I would really appreciate any info you might have on him.

I watched the video, definitely nothing the guy should have got pissed about. If I was him I'd be pissed at myself for not pulling over at the numerous parts of the track that it's possible to let a rider pass.

Sorry, iMovie's default I guess. I have no idea what I'm doing on this Mac. Try now.

Wow. What an inconsiderate prick. Looked as thought he was trying to prove something by not letting you pass, especially on that corner near the gravel carpark area.

Yeah. In hindsight I should've just waited a bit, also probably left a larger gap between us, but I was hoping to get past so I stuck pretty close behind him. About the half way point I just gave up.

That's all immaterial now though, just after his name so I can give it to the police.

Give the guy a break, he is obviously suffering from earthquake induced post traumatic stress syndrome. You pushed him over the edge by tailing him and lecturing him on how you think he should go about his Sunday ride.
