LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) -

The Lowndes County Sheriff's Office was asking for the public's help Tuesday in identifying the owner of a pick up truck from which a glass beer bottle was thrown at some cyclists.

The sheriff's office says someone in the truck threw the bottle at a group of cyclists around 4 p.m. Sunday as the cyclists were riding on Old State Rd.

Photos from a camera on one of the bikes captured several shots of the truck. According to the sheriff's office, two of the cyclists received minor cuts when the bottle shattered after hitting the ground.

"This is potentially an aggravated assault case and that's how we're investigating it; for the potential that someone could've been harmed," said Lowndes County Sheriff's Office Lt. Stryde Jones. "If this has happened to other cyclists, I'm going to urge them to file a report as well."

As of Tuesday afternoon, no charges had been filed.

Call the sheriff's office at (229) 671-2985 if you have any information.
