A cyclist accused of slashing the face of a Thermax Refrigeration and Heating technician with a knife earlier this month will return to court at the end of September.

Police received a call from the driver of a company vehicle at about 8:50 a.m on Aug. 5, stating he had been slashed by a knife following a collision with a cyclist. According to police, the 28-year-old driver from Coaldale was travelling on 2 A Avenue North and turning onto 13 Street when the collision occurred. Immediately following the collision, the cyclist approached the vehicle and allegedly slashed the driver across the face with a knife. 

Peter Ajang, 46, of Lethbridge, is charged with aggravated assault and possession of an offensive weapon. He made a brief appearance in Lethbridge provincial court on Thursday, and had his case adjourned until Sept. 30. Ajang is released on $200 cash bail and is subject to various release conditions, including he not possess any knives, except for the purpose of work or eating, or any other weapons.
