Woman in Boardman assaulted by man on motorcycle

Published: Fri, May 9, 2014 @ 11:51 a.m.

BOARDMAN — Boardman police are investigating an assault of woman who reported she was punched by a man after she nearly caused a car accident.

The 18-year-old woman said she was turning into Speedway on East Midlothian Avenue at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday when she heard tires screech behind her and a motorcycle almost hit her.

The white male on the bike then came up to her and yelled at her for nearly causing him to hit her.

He then reached into a window and punched her with a closed fist on the left cheek twice, according to a police report.

The woman had minor swelling on her face and declined medical treatment.

She gave a description of a red-bearded male approximately 6 feet tall on a black sport bike with no visible license plate, according to a police report.

No arrests were made.

Things we don't know (so we shouldn't pass judgement):

Was she making a left or a right turn into the Speedway?

Were her tail lights in working order?

Was she in the proper lane to make the turn, either right or left?

How close was the bike to the car?

How fast was the bike going?

Was either driver driving while distracted?

Note to 123: the woman reported that she nearly caused the accident. That's how it was determined, for purposes of the story, anyway.

Or it could be as so many drivers do these days: talk or text while driving and failure to use turn signals. Sadly some drivers can't get the "up for right and down for left" concept when it comes to signaling. Perhaps she slowed abruptly and didn't signal. If that's the case then she's too dumb to be driving. Those folks should use taxis or public transportation.

Yeah -it is right to speculate about the correct reasons for a boy on a motorcycle to punch a girl in a car twice in the face. Stupid possible texting !!!
