Help Catch This Thug

‘Vile’ cyclist punches couple in road attack – Portsmouth News.

I have posted the entire article from the News.

This thug needs to be locked up.


A COUPLE attacked by a cyclist have called for the ‘vile’ man to be caught.

Lee Dyer and his fiancé were both punched in the face after getting involved in an argument with a cyclist while driving to pick up relatives from Portsmouth ferry port.

Lee, 46, is now in danger of losing sight in his left eye due to his injuries.

Police have released a description of a man they wish to speak to, who is 5ft 6in, in his 40s with mousey brown hair and stubble. The man was riding a red and white-framed bike with white-rimmed tyres.

Lee and his fiancé Lisa Elphick-Smith, 49, both of Outram Road, Southsea said they had stopped at temporary traffic lights near the Co-op at The Hard when they saw two men on bikes acting dangerously.

Lisa said: ‘They were terrorising people on the pavement, so I said “you’re going to injure yourself or someone else” and then he started yelling abuse at me.’

The couple then drove off, riled but thinking that was the end of of the matter.

But the abusive cyclist hadn’t finished.

The couple had to stop at the next traffic lights under the railway bridge in Ordnance Row.

Lee said: ‘There was a massive bang on my side of the window and before I knew it, my door was flung open and I was punched in the face two times.

‘Then Lisa jumped out and ran around the back of the car telling him to stop, and then he punched her the face as well.’

Lisa said she jumped back and avoided the full brunt of the blow, but still ended up on the ground with a sore hip.

Lee said a woman in another car accidently ran over the abusive man’s companion’s bicycle.

Lee said: ‘I’m not a small person – 15-and-ahalf stone – so then I put up my hands and said, “right, that’s enough now”, they ran off and I was left stood there covered in blood.’

Lisa, a nurse, tended to Lee’s injuries. She said he had a haematoma in his left eye and might yet lose the use of that eye.

She said: ‘He still can’t see out of that eye.’

‘I want this guy caught.

‘I want him put away because I think he’s absolutely vile, a menace to society.’

The incident happened just before 6.30pm on Saturday, February 22. Police have only just released details.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information should call PC Greg Meacham at Southsea police station on 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111

Not in the public interest – So says CPS

There is something seriously wrong, with so called justice in this country.

Just one of the comments regarding this article in the Mail.

A seventeen year old thug beats up a fifteen year using his victims own crutches and the CPS have stated that prosecuting the thug is not in the public interest.

How can this be ?

We the public want these thugs removed from the streets.

We the public want to be able to walk the streets without the risk of un-provoked attack.

We the public want our police to have the support of the CPS, to not feel that their efforts are to no avail.

We the public want our justice system to start clamping down on the thugs that plague our streets.

And most of all, we the public, want justice for the victims of crime.

15 year old Angus Whittall needed 12 stitches for a gash in his mouth and suffered severe bruising to his head and neck.

The thug that caused these injuries just gets a wrist slap, a “final warning”. The implication there is that he has done this before. He is still out on the streets and able to do this again.

The law is pathetic.

The CPS has too often let the public down, has let the police down and most of all they have let down Angus Whittall and his family.
