Police are looking for a man who randomly struck a woman in the face with a hard object as he biked past her on a Woodside street over the weekend.

There's a reason why they don't follow directions. They're wacked.

Some driver made him do it. Wonder do the new bail laws don’t apply to the evil fascist drivers? City going down the toilet.
