George Floyd death: Moment angry cyclist rips flyer off teen

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

After forcefully retrieving the paper from the child's hand, the cyclist then grabs his bike and charges at the young man recording the encounter. "A subsequent arrest warrant was obtained and served on Mr. Brennan this evening after he voluntarily turned himself into detectives", police said in a statement.

The Maryland-National Capital Park Police tweeted that the assault occurred on Monday on the Capital Crescent Trail.

Brennan is accused of attacking three teenagers in all: the man who was videotaping, the woman who was posting fliers and the other woman who shouted at him.

Police have identified the man. In addition, we are grateful for technical assistance provided by the Montgomery County Department of Police, Criminal Investigations Division, and the legal support of the Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office.

The male victim, who recorded the video and asked to remain anonymous, told Patch.com: "He was just cycling down the trail".


"He videoed us on his first pass by, then stopped about (15 metres) past us and asked to see my signs, in a friendly tone".

"I wanted to inspire people to take action and show them what they can do", the 18-year-old said. "As soon as I put out my hand to show him the poster, he aggressively ripped it out of my hand". Park Police have a strong suspect as a result.

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

According to the teen, they were posting flyers around affluent neighborhoods to bring awareness to the recent killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and other racial inequalities in the US. "But please don't name individuals and risk harm to innocent people", he said.
