A man running through Weston was targeted by a pair of men in an assault on Sunday night.
The man was running on a bike path near the intersection of Hindmarsh Drive and McInnes Street at 7.45pm on Sunday, when two other men approached him.
Police say one of the alleged offenders demanded money from the runner, before both men assaulted him.
The runner was only able to get away from the alleged attackers after a cyclist rode past the area.
ACT police say they are still searching for the two men believed to be responsible for the incident.
