Park police seek public help in Kensington assault case
Man was pushed off his bike near Beach Drive, Kensington Parkway
Maryland-National Capital Park police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the person who pushed a man off his bike in the Kensington area on Saturday.
Police wrote on Twitter that a 64-year-old man was pushed off his bicycle in the area of Beach Drive and Kensington Parkway at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. The man was seriously injured, they said.
Police released a photo taken by a witness of the person they think attacked the man. Police said they think the attacker is a white man in his 30s who was wearing a white shirt and black shorts that day.
On Tuesday, police released a 21-second-video of the alleged attacker jogging and stopping briefly to speak with the man who was attacked. The silent video does not show an attack.
In reference to yesterdays post about the 1st degree assault on 9/12/20 near Beach Dr. and Kensington Pkwy, please see additional photos and a video showing a verbal exchange between the suspect and victim shortly before the assault. If you have any info please call or email. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/x8KhYC78e7
