Cyclist attacked on Mile End Park towpath

ROBBERS broke a cyclist's jaw when they stole his bike and mobile phone in a canal-side attack.

The 44-year-old man was cycling along the towpath through Mile End Park towards Mile End Road around 6.30pm on Friday last week when his path was blocked by a youth who jumped in his way and punched him in the face.

He was then punched and kicked to the floor by a gang of attackers before managing escaper into Whitman Road,
only to be set upon by the same group one more time.
