INDIANAPOLIS — Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department are asking for the public’s help with identifying a man accused of pushing a cyclist off his bike, which resulted in him being hospitalized with a concussion. 

IMPD says the assault happened on June 20 on the Monon Trail near 75th Street around 9:45 a.m.

Terry Morris, 41, was riding southbound when a cyclist came up behind him and knocked him off his bike, according to witnesses.

“Several eyewitnesses that stayed around to talk to police mentioned there was a gentleman riding pretty aggressively and screamed some expletives and curse words. Then he actually did lift up an elbow and nudge him,” witness Casey Miller said.

They say he is a person of interest and is described as wearing yellow shorts, a gray sleeveless shirt, and white tennis shoes. IMPD also says he is known to travel the Monon Trail regularly.
