A cyclist brutally assaulted a Hungarian mother in Szentendre, after the woman called her out for endangering her child.
A shocking assault occurred last weekend, as a cyclist brutally attacked a woman in front of her children, ripost.hu reports. According to an eyewitness, who wished to remain anonymous, a woman was walking her dog with her children in a less frequented part of Szentendre, when a cyclist reached them from behind at high speed, nearly hitting one of the children.
“The cyclist, aged 45, was coming from the direction of the Danube. When he reached the family, one of the small children stepped out a foot in front of him and barely avoided being hit. This all happened because the cyclist didn’t ring the bell nor did he slow down even though he was coming from behind” – the witness recalled the incident to Ripost.
Then, according to the witness’s testimony, the woman yelled at him. She called him out on his reckless behaviour, which greatly angered the man.
“The guy got off his bike, walked up to her and punched her hard with his fist, without saying a word. She fell into the ditch, but had the presence of mind to grab the man’s shirt by the neck and pull him down too.”
As the woman wrestled with the man in the ditch, her young children, in shock, were crying out frantically for their mother. The assaulter wanted to flee the scene, but then two other men and the woman’s husband arrived to help her out and held the man back until the police arrived.

The prosecution quickly follows the assault
According to the Szentendre Police Department, the man was promptly taken to the police station and is currently being prosecuted for assault. A case has already been opened, and he is being charged with attempted aggravated assault following the mother’s press of charges.
Meanwhile, according to index.hu, in a local Facebook group, the witnesses tried to identify the attacker, who is allegedly an educated individual with a degree and the CEO of a social research company.
The assault shocked Hungarian society, as such attacks are rather unusual against women. According to the latest of TIME magazine, Budapest is the 2nd safest destination in Europe for women.
What a scumbag. I hope they throw him in the slammer for a good year, preferably more. Please follow up on this, D.N.H. He’s the “CEO of a social research company”… – says it all. He produces nothing of value, he’s paid by the taxpayers and/or our ol’ friend Gyorgy, and has a ginormous ego and send of self-entitlement. Unfortunately, cyclists everywhere tend to exhibit appalling behavior. If drivers of motorized vehicles conducted themselves even 10% as bad as many cyclists, they’d be banned from driving for life.
