A 46 year old man from Lofthouse is due to be sentenced at York Crown Court on 9th October 2017 after pleading guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm on a female cyclist.

The incident occurred on Low Wath Road, Pateley Bridge, Harrogate, at around 1pm on 11th May 2017.

The defendant was in a silver Ford Transit at the time of the incident.

He stopped the vehicle to confront the woman and then pulled her off her bike.

The 38-year-old victim, who is a semi-professional triathlete from Harrogate, suffered a bone fracture in the pelvic region and cuts and bruises to her lower back and head which required treatment.

The case has been committed to York Crown Court for sentencing after previous hearings at Harrogate Magistrates' Court.
