NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A University of New Orleans student said he was attacked while he was riding through Elysian Fields, and the entire incident was caught on camera.

Victor Pizarro said his husband Tim was riding his bike after school when a man tried to run him off the road for not riding his bike on the sidewalk.

Victor took to Facebook to describe the entire incident.

"The motorist verbally threatened him from his moving vehicle and informed him that he should be "on the sidewalk" on his bike," said Pizarro post.

According Pizzaro, the motorist then tried to swerve into Tim with his car, but he was able to pedal away.

"Tim took out his phone and started filming as the attacker exited his vehicle and approached him, hoping that the threat of a recording would prevent his assailant from attacking him," according to the post.

However, Tim's assailant was not swayed by the camera, and hit him anyways.

Tim's attorney said he was left with a black eye, and New Orleans Police are looking for the suspect.

NOPD asks anyone with information on the suspect or incident to call Crimestoppers at 504-837-8477.
