Attacks on Mpls. cyclists prompt police to ask for public's help


Minneapolis police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a motorist who threw chunks of concrete or bricks at bicyclists in at least two neighborhoods on Friday, leaving one man with serious injuries.

The attacks appeared to be random, police spokesman John Elder said Sunday night.

About 5:30 p.m. Friday, he said, two people were struck with cement-type material “within seconds of each other” near W. 41st Street and Bryant Avenue S. One person had minor injuries, but the second, identified on a GoFundMe page as Mackenzie Jensen, was struck in the face and suffered multiple facial fractures that will require two surgeries.
