Authorities in Beverly Hills are searching for a driver who was captured on surveillance camera footage ramming his vehicle into a bicyclist in what police allege was a road rage incident.
The collision occurred at approximately 6 p.m. on April 3 in an alley in the 9000 block of Wilshire Boulevard. The driver and the bicyclist initially became involved in an altercation near the intersection of Doheny Drive and Clifton Way. After words were exchanged, the bicyclist allegedly struck the driver in the face and fled. The driver followed the cyclist into an alley, where he allegedly accelerated and struck the victim, pinning him against a dumpster. The suspect then backed up and drove away.
“No arrest has been made. It appears all the leads have dried up,” said Lt. Lincoln Hoshino, with the Beverly Hills Police Department. “It is an ongoing investigation.”
The bicyclist suffered “bumps and bruises,” and has since recovered, Hoshino added. The suspect was driving a 2008 or later model, white BMW 328i sedan. He is described as being Middle Eastern or Caucasian with dark hair and eyes, and a thin build. The BMW likely sustained minor damage to the front grille.
Police released the surveillance camera images and a sketch of the suspect with the hope someone may have witnessed the incident or can identify the suspect. Hoshino said the information was not released publicly until last week because investigators had been following up on leads. He added that no similar incidents have been reported.
