Yesterday, we reported that a motorist tried to Taser a cyclist in Northgate. Today, we’ve got more unfortunate news of another attack on a biker.

In this most recent incident, a cyclist was riding north on Eastlake Ave E past Hamlin St around 6:30 p.m. on October 20t, and saw a woman standing next to a parked car on the street.

The woman was “acting weird” and “appeared to be using the car as a shield or barrier between her and the moving traffic,” according to a police report.

As the victim rode past the woman, she swung a golf club at the cyclist, striking him in the arm.

The woman never spoke a word during the attack, and calmly walked away after the incident.

The cyclist called police, but officers were unable to find the woman.

The cyclist was not seriously injured.
