An investigation has been launched by police after a woman was kicked off her bike in north Cumbria.

She was riding along the cycle path between Dalston and Carlisle at approximately 8:15am today, close to Dalston Sewage Works, when she was assaulted.

The suspect is described as a white man, medium build wearing a black coloured face mask, black hooded top and camouflage trousers.

Officers are interested in anyone who was on the cycle path this morning (June 3) who may have seen a man matching this description.

In particular, they would like to speak to a couple in their 50s or 60s who were walking a dog in the area in the direction of Dalston at the time.

  • Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101.
