Group of men jump bicyclist in Menlo Park

Suspects vanish from car

Five men streamed out of a Mercedes Benz around 10 a.m. on Wednesday (Nov. 16) to jump a 23-year-old man riding a Huffy mountain bike, Menlo Park police said.

After kicking and punching the bicyclist, one assailant peddled away from O'Brien Drive on the bike, while the other suspects piled back into the white Mercedes.

By the time East Palo Alto police stopped the car about 1.3 miles away from the crime scene, the car contained only a driver, whom the victim didn't recognize. The driver gave police a statement and went on his way.

According to investigators, the crime appears gang-related.

Witnesses described one attacker as an unshaven, heavyset Hispanic male, approximately 16 to18 years old, with short, slicked down hair, and wearing a white T-shirt, white basketball shorts, and long white socks.

A second suspect was described as a slender Hispanic male with long light brown hair, pulled back in a ponytail.
