A 60-year-old cyclist was torn from his bicycle by an unknown person in Styria near Schladming on Monday and was seriously injured. The perpetrator beat the man so brutally that the victim suffered multiple broken bones.
The Stiermarker was driving with his wife on the Ennsradweg (R7) in the direction of Schladming around 4.40 pm when he was suddenly snatched from his bicycle by an unknown person. While the victim was lying on the ground, the perpetrator violently beat him.
The woman came to help, but could do nothing about the aggressiveness of the attacker. Finally, the stranger fled on foot into the adjacent forest in the direction of Mandling.
He would come from a homeless environment: the police found a tent and a cart nearby. The seriously injured cyclist was taken to Schladming hospital.
The immediately launched search, in which several police patrols, guide dog patrols and a police helicopter took part, yielded nothing.
The wanted man is said to be about 1.75 meters tall and very slim. He was wearing grey-brown work trousers with large side pockets and a long-sleeved shirt in the same color, as well as a green baseball cap. He was also carrying a very large green hiking backpack and is said to have been wearing black boots and gray plastic work gloves.
Information is received from the Schladming Police Inspectorate on 059/133-6356.
