Brutal Assault On Bicyclist in Omaha

KETV in Omaha, Nebraska reports on a horrifying incident:

Police are looking for the person who severely injured a bicyclist with a baseball bat.

Steven Wurtele Jr., 20, said he was riding his bike near 48th and Q streets on Friday when someone jumped out of the window of a passing car and hit him in the face with the bat.

The impact fractured Wurtele’s sinus cavity, he said. He also had to get stitches over his eye.

Police did not release a description of the person they’re looking for in connection with the attack.

Good grief. Best wishes for a quick recovery, Steven!
