A woman has been seriously injured after a man leaned out of a passing car and slapped her as she rode with a friend in Torquay.
The 52-year-old from Geelong was riding in Horseshoe Bend Road just before 9:00am Saturday when a dark coloured 4WD approached.
A man in the passenger seat allegedly leaned out and slapped the 52-year-old woman on the backside, causing her to lose control and fall.
She was taken to Geelong Hospital for treatment for a broken collarbone.
Police say the man also slapped the woman’s friend.
The car, which police say may have been a Mercedes, was last seen turning into the Quay Estate towards Fischer Street.
The registration number is similar to TBU 683.
The attacker is described as being a teenager with brown, shoulder length hair and wearing a dark coloured top.
One can only hope they hand themselves in ....
