Police search for suspect who threw metal object into a bicyclist's spokes, killing him

Scottsdale Police are investigating a bizarre homicide that happened in February, and they say the vehicle seen in surveillance images may be key to solving the case.

According to a statement released by Kevin Watts of Scottsdale Police, Bryan Blair, 58, was riding a bike north at around the 1200 block of N. Scottsdale Road at around 6:15 p.m. on February 22 when an unidentified man deliberate stuck a long metal object into the front spokes of Blair's bike, as he traveled past.

The bike, according to police, stopped instantly, which threw Blair over the bike and onto the street. The suspect then got into a car with a second person inside, and fled the scene. Blair was then taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, and died on March 14.

The car is described as a 1995 to 1996 black Nissan 200SX, and the suspect, who also drove the car, is described as a white man, 30 to 45 years old, with a shaved head, and wearing a black shirt and brown boots.
