Witnesses sought over violent hit run in Sydney’s east

Police want to hear from anyone who saw a vicious hit run in Sydney’s eastern suburbs back in September 2016.

What they know so far is that a 57-year-old man was riding his bicycle on Robinson Avenue, near York Road, Queen’s Park when a Black Range Rover hit the back of his bike, causing him to fall.

The driver then got out and punched the cyclist in the face.


The motorist then got back in his car and was last seen heading south on York Road.

The drama unfolded before 9:00AM Wednesday September 21.

Officers are keen to speak to the man behind the wheel, described as being 30-40 years old with a dark complexion.
