VIDEO: Bicyclist pinned against trash bin by BMW in Beverly Hills road rage incident, driver sought by police

(CBS) BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the driver of a white BMW 328i involved in an apparent road rage incident with a bicyclist in Beverly Hills, which was caught on surveillance video, CBS Los Angeles reports.

During the incident, which occurred on April 3, 2013 at the intersection of Doheny Drive and Clifton Way, the bicyclist reportedly punched the driver in the face. Police say the driver of the vehicle then allegedly threatened to kill the bicyclist and followed him into an alley, according to the station.

The driver then intentionally rammed the bicyclist with his vehicle, pinning him to a metal rolling trash bin, police said. The victim reportedly sustained non-life threatening injuries and is expected to recover.

The BMW driver is described as a Middle Eastern or White male, in his mid-30's with dark hair, dark eyes and a thin build. The suspect's vehicle most likely sustained minor front end damage, police said, according to the station.

Anyone with information that can lead to the identification of the suspect is asked to contact Detective Eric Hoyn at 310-285-2156.
