A cyclist was assaulted by three men on Catalina Highway earlier this month.
According to a Pima County Sheriff’s Department press release, a 24-year-old cyclist was riding up Catalina Highway on Oct. 1 when an about mile post one, someone in a silver car threw an object, possibly a soda can, and hit him in the head.
The cyclist turned around and caught up to the vehicle at Snyder Road and Catalina Highway.
According to the victim, the car pulled over and three men got out of the vehicle and began assaulting the cyclist. Video shows the cyclist being punched and kicked while the cyclist was on the ground.
