Police are hunting for a man on a bike after he tried to rob a woman on a city cycle path.

The cyclist approached the 48-year-old woman from behind as she walked along the path near Mearenside, between Bughtlin and Maybury Drive on Monday morning.

He pushed her to the ground and the pair struggled before the cyclist left empty handed.

The attacker is described as a white man with a slim build. He is around 6ft tall and about 20 years old.

He has short unkempt hair and wears a stud in his right cheekbone, near to his eye. He was wearing a navy blue CrossHatch top, dark tracksuit bottoms and was riding an old racing bike.
