A biker in Belgium recently made headlines for what appeared to be purposefully extending his leg out to push a toddler down the street before riding away. He has now been identified and summoned to court, but he has refused to accept responsibility for his acts.
In Belgium a cyclist who kneeled a 5-year-old to get her out of the way faces a year in prison
On Christmas Day, Patrick Mpasa was out with his wife and children when the biker in question approached them from behind. Patrick was filming his family strolling, thus the entire incident of the bicycle riding up behind him and kneeing his 5-year-old daughter Nea was caught on his phone. Later, he released the video on Facebook, where it was widely circulated and netizens asked that the perpetrator be punished. While the other child and Patrick’s wife were strolling on the side of the tiny path, Nea was walking in the middle of the street, according to a video filmed in a nature park in Baraque Michel, Belgium. When the cyclist pulled up behind her, she seemed to be having a good time. The man’s knee is stretched, colliding with the child’s back and sending her crashing to the ground. Even after she has fallen, the man does not stop and continues cycling.
The man may be seen on his bike ringing bells that were allegedly too quiet for the Mpasas to hear. Patrick asked viewers if he was correct in filing a police report against the man while uploading the video. He also told netizens that he had tracked down the man after the incident, but that he had exhibited no remorse for his acts. The video did, however, become incredibly famous in the country, and the man in issue was quickly identified. According to the father’s account, the assailant went on to accuse Patrick of being violent. Patrick told a Dutch news site that the man claimed not to have seen Nea fall. He even stated that if he had seen her fall, he would have come to a halt. Patrick opined, “I have the idea he believes it’s normal.” According to current sources, the individual will have to appear in front of the Verviers correctional court in February 2021, when he might face up to a year in prison.
