Man Grabs Little Girl Helping Her Mother Put Up Flyers In Honor Of George Floyd
A man bicycling on the Capital Crescent Trail was seen grabbing a girl and harassing the adults she was helping post flyers in honor of George Floyd, who was killed in Minneapolis while in police custody last week.
According to Bethesda Magazine, Maryland-National Capital Park Police have reached out to the public to identify the man, who along with trying to grab flyers from the girl also charged a male adult with his bicycle as the man filmed the incident with his phone.
Video circulating on the internet “shows a bicyclist wearing sunglasses, an orange helmet and a gray shirt” confronting the people posting flyers.
In a scene leading up to the bicyclist charging at the male member of the group, he is seen accosting the girl.
Later, video “shows him running toward the filmer for five seconds before the camera hits the ground,” while someone can be heard saying, “Hey. What the f—.”
The magazine reported: “As the camera hits the ground, another male voice can be heard saying ‘The f—ing tape. You want it? Give it to me.’”
Park police posted a photo of the bicyclist on Twitter Tuesday and wrote that they were asking for the public’s help in identifying him. They asked people to call a detective at 301-929-2774 if they had information and to reference case number 20001297.
Park police issued a press release Thursday afternoon that said around 12:45 p.m. on Monday, three “young adults,” including one male and two females, were walking near the Dalecarlia Tunnel near the Brookmont area. A bicyclist, police wrote, started arguing with the three people, who were posting flyers.
