Arsenal legend Lee Dixon blasts police for failing to investigate attack on cyclist pal

ARSENAL legend Lee Dixon has blasted police who dismissed a vicious attack on a pal by moped-riding thugs. The ex-England ace said it was “outrageous” that cops emailed Bruce Berkley to close his case just four hours after it was reported. Lee Dixon said he was “outraged” by how police treated cycle mechanic Bruce Berkley Cycle mechanic Bruce, 49, was on his £9,500 bike heading towards Twickenham, South West London, while also pushing a client’s £4,000 cycle. The thugs tried to grab the customer’s bike, but Bruce bravely clung on as they dragged him along at 30mph. The attackers sped off when he fell to the ground on Wednesday. He suffered massive grazes on his arms and legs. Bruce was cycling to Twickenham with a client’s bike when he was attacked by thugs Bruce tweeted the police email, which said there was insufficient evidence to continue. He said: “If they’d done this with a knife or gun, would the police dismiss it so quickly?” [bc_video video_id=”5773833734001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Lee Dixon, Sol Campbell and David Dein reveal their admiration for Arsene Wenger”] Pundit Lee, 54, retweeted the post and wrote: “Outrageous. What is happening to our country?” It came on the same day we told how six cops posed with his ex-Arsenal teammate Ian Wright when his stolen car was found — while police were “too busy” to probe a break-in 500 yards away in North West London.
