A CYCLIST was assaulted after coming to the rescue of a woman being attacked in Yate yesterday morning.
The man was riding his bike on Wellington Road at 10.30am on Thursday, August 29 when he heard a woman screaming.
He followed the sound of her voice and came upon a woman fighting off a man near the Farmhouse public house and Apple Dental Practice.
As he disturbed the attacker, the woman was able to run off. The man then assaulted the cyclist. He suffered injuries to his face and was taken to hospital.
