GREENDALE, Ind. (WXIX) - Police are trying to identify a motorcyclist seen on video assaulting another driver.

A few minutes before 6 p.m. Sunday, Greendale Police responded to a crash at Lorey Lane on US 50 which involved a black convertible car and GMC truck, the department wrote on Facebook.

Prior to the reported crash, the driver of the car was involved in a battery at US 50 and Hollywood Boulevard, according to Greendale police.

The alleged assault was captured on video.

The video shows an unidentified motorcyclist pulling up to the driverside of the car. From there, police say the motorcyclist “repeatedly assaults” the driver of the car.

“It was very disturbing, upsetting for anyone that watched that video,” said Greendale Police Cpl. Pam Taylor. “So, again, we’re trying to locate the identity of that driver to figure out what was going on, if anything happened before.

If anyone witnessed this battery or has any information to help identify the driver of the motorcycle, contact Officer Morgan Henderson at 812-537-1321.

The driver in the convertible lost consciousness, leading to the crash that prompted police to respond.

“There was some people that were following behind the vehicle and saw it drift off left of center and then make contact with the pickup truck that was going westbound,” explained Cpl. Taylor.

The Lawrenceburg Police Department released photos of the motorcyclist suspect involved in the assault. The suspect is described as a 6′1, 230-pound man around 40 years old.
