He told them that mopeds are not allowed on the cycle path. The two then responded by turning back and hit the runner from behind.

Police said that the runner hit the ground and was then kicked and beaten by the middle-aged moped riders, who drove away after abusing the runner. He was left wounded.

The moped drivers have not been caught. Police are still working on the case by investigating the neighborhood and moped rental locations, NOS reports.
