A man told Annapolis police he was riding his bicycle on Sunday on Calvert Street near Rowe Boulevard when four or five men approached him and one knocked him off his bicycle.

The bicyclist told police that around 2:30 a.m. an assailant in a group of several men struck him the face, knocking him off his bicycle. The victim ran away, leaving his bicycle and phone, police said.

When he returned, both his red Jeep Comanche mountain bicycle and his cell phone, a black Verizon slider-type cell phone, were gone, police said.
