The police are looking for the victim, presumably as a witness to the
offence. But the offender has admitted cycling along the footway so can
hardly plead NG to it in court.

Where is the evidence the victim was on the pavement and how is attempted murder justified?

The report clearly states that the victim was on foot on the "pavement"
(properly known as the "footway" for good and rather obvious reasons)
and that the offender was also on the footway, on a bicycle.

Read it again - a few times,if necessary. Eventually, even you' will
understand it despite the use of some words of more than one syllable.
Just keep at it.

Let me just re-type that on a better keyboard:

What did the "offender" do to the "victim"?

He pushed her into the road. The report clearly states the victim was cycling along the road.

Indeed, that is the way it was reported. I was enquiring about what
happened in Nugent's alternative universe.

The victim was threatened by the offender's dangerous behaviour, of course.

There's a reason why cycling along footways is not allowed. Have a think
and see whether you can guess what it is.

But in any event, any citizen is entitled to point out that an
offender's illegal behaviour is... er... illegal, and to remonstrate
with the offender. Not that offending cyclists are susceptible to any
sense of shame or social responsibility, of course.

How can anyone be pushed from the road into the road? She was cycling
along the footway - illegally.
