While Newton police have drawn criticism for being slow to investigate a ‘dooring’ allegation here, they have charged a 71-year-old man with assault and battery and defacing property after he allegedly attacked a bicyclist who damaged his car late last month, the TAB reports.

The cyclist said the suspect trapped the front wheel of the bike between his legs and held onto the handlebars and wouldn’t let it go. He said the suspect ripped the speedometer off the bike and hit him in the face.
