City of London Police are appealing to the public to help them identify a cyclist who violently head-butted a pedestrian.

The victim was walking across the road when a cyclist jumped a red light and nearly collided with him. The cyclist, in a moment of unexplained rage, then got off his bike and head-butted the victim. 

The assault, captured on CCTV, took place on Farringdon Street on 22 August at around 13:45.  

The 57 year old man was left needing stitches to a wound above his eye, and suffered ligament damage to his arm where he fell.
