A man driving in his 2015 Ford Explorer pulled over after a bicyclist threw something at the car, according to Menlo Park police, and was then struck in the head with a bicycle lock.
The 24-year-old man was driving in the 700 block of El Camino Real around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28. He pulled over to check for damage, finding a dent, while the suspect wordlessly flung the lock at the back of his head, leaving a laceration, police said.
Running with his bike down El Camino Real, the suspect was last seen turning left onto Alma Street.
The driver described the assailant as a thin male, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, with medium-toned skin and either in his late teens or early 20s. The suspect had a closely trimmed beard and mustache, "blondish" hair and wore khaki pants and a khaki shirt, the report said.
