Police are looking for an e-bike rider after he allegedly punched a cyclist in the face in a downtown Toronto bike lane.

The e-bike rider punched the cyclist several times before riding away, police say.

The confrontation occurred on Oct. 22, when the cyclist was riding eastbound on Harbord Street near Spadina Avenue.

The cyclist suffered "minor injuries," police said.

The e-bike rider, is described as white, between five feet and ten inches and six feet, with shoulder−length blond hair.
