Greater Manchester Police have released a video of a road rage assault which was captured on film by the victim’s headcam.
The 33-year-old, who has not been identified, was cycling through the Longsight area of the city on 26 January when a BMW driver jumped out of his car and attacked him.
He grabbed the victim by the throat and screamed abuse before getting back in to his vehicle and drove off.
In the video the cyclist, who was left shaken but not injured, can be heard informing the man that he is being filmed and will be reported to the police.
PC Matt Dixon said: “This is as clear an incident of road rage as you are likely to see and we are working hard to identify the person responsible.
“The victim has every right to be on the road and it is not acceptable that he has been targeted in this way.”
Police have described the man as around 50 years old, between 5ft 8 and 5ft 10, and of medium build. He has short brown balding hair.
Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact the police on 0161 856 4228.
