GLOBALLY renowned scientist Richard Dawkins has said his Tesla was smashed by ‘psycho’ cyclist in an unprovoked attack.

The scientist, who has over 2 million followers on Twitter, took the app on Monday evening in a desperate plea to find witnesses.

Writing on Twitter he said: “Witnesses? Cowley Road, November c 1.50 pm?

“Crazed cyclist launched unprovoked attack on blue Tesla 3 heading South East.

“Then pursued us, fell off his bike in his fury, then tried to smash the driver’s side of the front window.”

He then asked for witnesses to call the police.

Thames Valley Police confirmed it was looking into the incident after officers received a report on Monday about a member of the public’s blue Tesla Model 3 was reportedly damaged after a cyclist smashed it following an incident on the Cowley Road.

The police have asked anyone who saw the incident to call 101 and quote the reference 43210539678.

Richard Dawkins later shared a photo of the damage done by the ‘psycho’ who allegedly smashed the window.

He added, writing again on Twitter: “In current climate-change crisis, I’m bewildered by hostility to Tesla: electric vehicle pioneer.

“Alas no memstick, so no camera record.

“I’ll plug it in henceforth. I’ve asked Tesla if they can retrieve record.”
