A cyclist has died from his injuries nearly three weeks after being violently attacked in central Oxford, UK.

Eamonn Anderson, 56, suffered serious head injuries when one of a six-strong group of young men kicked him, knocking him off his bicycle.

The cyclist was taken to hospital by ambulance, but died of his injuries at John Radcliffe Hospital on Friday evening.

Det Ch Insp Mike Lynch, of Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit, said: “This was a violent attack, which initially left the victim with serious head injuries, and has now tragically led to his death.”

“We believe this to have been an isolated incident, and since it occurred, we have been in the process of conducting a thorough investigation into it in order to establish the circumstances and also to arrest those responsible.”

Police are appealing to witnesses of the incident to contact the 101 non-emergency number, and are also appealing for anyone who might have footage of the incident to come forward.
