Today(08/11) a customer was attacked on Oberlin Rd. by three black men in a silver Honda Civic. One of them struck him with a chain as they passed. They then stopped in the street and got out. One of them also had a baseball bat. The were making comments along the lines of, "We are going to get all of you mother****ers" When several motorists stopped they took off. No one got a plate #. The police were called and were unhelpful, saying it was probably a joke and not even making a report. We treid to talk the guy into reporting the officer, writing the local traffic reporter and contacting Sig Hutchinson(A bike/greenway proponent) He was concerned about retaliation from the police but it looked like he was going to come forward.
The main thing: Be aware. Don't get hurt but try to get any info that might catch these guys if it happens to you.
This is the second assault I have heard of (And the cops seem uninterested) The other was near Jordan lake when the passenger in a 300 chysler swung the door into two cyclists, putting one in the hospital.
