LOS ANGELES (CBS) —  The coroner’s office is asking for the public’s help to identify a bicyclist who died last month in South Los Angeles.

The man was a Latino or white who appears to be over 50 years old. He was 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 155 pounds and crew cut gray hair.

The man was seen riding a bicycle at the southeast corner of Florence and Central avenues in South Los Angeles about 5 p.m. on Nov. 28. Officials say the man lost control, fell from the bicycle, and his head struck a metal pole before he hit the ground.

The man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

John Doe 206 was wearing a brown jacket, a white XL shirt, tan pants with a waistline of 34, black shoes and a brown with white metal buckled belt.

Anyone with information on the man was asked to call Investigator Daniel Machian at (323) 343-0754.

    It would help if they showed a photo and/or checked any local shelters, perhaps people would recognize him.

      If he struck his head enough hard enough to kill him, it may have caused trauma to the face that may make it hard to show a photo. :\
