Halifax Regional Police are looking for a cyclist who they say slapped a woman in the face last month.

She had been driving at around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12 when she passed a pair of bicyclists just before the intersection of Purcells Cove Road and Williams Lake Road.

When she reached the four-way stop, police say one of them came up to the car, yelled at her, then struck her with an open hand.

He's described as white and in his 40s or 50s with a slim build and short, light-coloured hair. Both cyclists were wearing green bike helmets, cycling attire and were riding racing-style bicycles.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 902-490-5020, or submit an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers.
