A THREE-year-old boy suffered facial injuries when he was knocked over by a cyclist riding on the pavement.

Connor Seymour was knocked off his feet but instead of saying sorry, the cyclist blamed the little boy for the accident.

Now Connor’s furious mum, Holly, has urged cyclists to be more careful and has asked anyone who saw the collision to contact the police.

Holly and Connor were walking in Bournemouth coach station at 9.15am on Wednesday, November 10, when the cyclist mounted the pavement.

“Connor was knocked over and ended up with a cut lip, cuts to his cheek and bruising all over his head,” said Holly. “I couldn’t believe it when the cyclist said it was Connor’s fault for walking into his path – we were on the pavement.

“He hit him so hard that it knocked a grommet right out of his ear.”

Holly, who lives in nearby Southcote Road, said she was so shocked she was unable to provide police with a description of the offender.

“It was quite busy so perhaps someone else may be able to give the police some information” she said.

Holly also had her two-year-old daughter, Skye, with her at the time but she was in a buggy.

“I’m just glad Skye wasn’t walking because it could have been even worse if he had crashed into her because she is very petite,” she said.

The family were on their way to get a coach to Ringwood to see Holly’s mum when the accident happened.

Anyone with information is asked to call Dorset Police on 01202 222222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
