Police have launched a witness appeal after a cyclist was attacked with a metal rod in Camden Town.

A man who appeared to be wearing an apron launched the attack in Pratt Street, at the junction with Camden High Street, at about 11am on Wednesday, September 10.

The cyclist attempted to dodge blows from the metal rod by lifting up his bike and using it as a shield.

A 27-year-old man was later arrested in a nearby cafe in Pratt Street on suspicions of possessing an offensive weapon.

A 29-year-old woman was also arrested there for obstructing police.
