The Montgomery County Division of the Maryland-National Capital Park Police is searching for a male cyclist wanted for his alleged June 1 physical assault on multiple minors.

The video shows the man approaching the teen with his bicycle and the teen can be heard yelling "what?, hey, what the f***?" before he is thrown to the ground and the camera cuts off.

The 34-second video shows a cyclist walk up to a young adult. "Get off of her", the first woman shouted at him, once again moving to push him away.

Anthony Brennan III, 60, faces assault charges in connection with an incident that was seen on a viral video, authorities say.

The man who shot the video says when the man noticed him filming, he grabbed his bike and charged at him, knocking him down.

The video was watched millions of times and prompted anger on social media as protesters nationwide vent anger at the death of George Floyd, an African American who died last month in Minneapolis after a police knelt on his neck. "I'm not sure exactly what he meant by that", he said. "As soon as I put out my hand to show him the poster, he aggressively ripped it out of my hand".

Yankees-Red Sox Series Heats up AL East Race
The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

That's when the 18-year-old took out his phone, he said, and started recording.

He said he and his friends were headed toward Georgetown when the cyclist, also headed in that direction, passed them while holding his cellphone.

Police posted photos of the cyclist online and asked the public for its assistance identifying him. The girl starts to back up, visibly afraid. "You'll never amount to anything". "Keep the tips coming and we will follow up", the tweet said.

The teen said his leg was cut by the bike and that the man pushed him over and "held his bike to me". Jeffrey Coe said he did not know the lawyer's details.
