An 80-year-old East Indian man sustained a fractured hip after he apparently was knocked off his bicycle by unknown assailants in Yuba City.[link]
Shawna Pavey, spokeswoman for the Yuba City Police Department, said Yuba City resident Harbans Singh was reportedly riding his bike at 4:51 p.m. Saturday on Winship Road near Garden Highway, when four or five occupants of a maroon-colored Chevrolet Tahoe sport utility vehicle began throwing rocks at him.
Pavey said none of the rocks hit Singh, so he ignored the men - described as either Hispanic or white males between 25 and 30 years old - and continued riding. The drove ahead of Singh to the corner of Winship and Main streets and stopped the vehicle, where one man got out and allegedly pushed Singh, causing him to fall off his bicycle.
"It was reported as an accident by a witness who looked out the window," Pavey said Monday. "It looked like a car had hit the gentleman, so the witness called it an accident."
