Police are appealing for witnesses to help find a motorcyclist who allegedly mowed down a pedestrian in Shepparton’s central business district on Sunday morning.

Shepparton police Sergeant Mark Washington yesterday said two motorcyclists were seen driving erratically across the city about 2.10am.

He said one of the motorcyclists, a Shepparton man, 26, was allegedly riding up on one wheel on High St when he struck a pedestrian crossing the intersection of High and North Sts.

Sgt Washington said the motorcyclist fled the scene, leaving the pedestrian, a Katandra man, 27, with a broken leg.

Sgt Washington said a second motorcyclist, a Shepparton man, 20, was arrested shortly after and is facing several charges, including unlicensed driving, conduct endangering life and evading police.

He said the motorcyclist who allegedly ran over the pedestrian was yet to be found and was expected to be charged with similar offences, in addition to charges related to the hit-and-run.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to phone Shepparton police on 58205777.
