Another cyclist was attacked in Irene in Centurion after several people were robbed in the suburb over the past few weeks.<?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"?>

In one incident, a woman was left for dead after being stabbed by her attackers.

It is understood a couple was cycling on a dirt road on Saturday, when the woman was pushed off her bike and robbed.

It is believed the attackers waited for her husband, who was riding ahead, to pass them before grabbing the woman.

Police said they arrested two men in connection with the spate of attacks on cyclists but the pair was released on bail.

They are investigating the possibility that the same men may have been responsible for the latest attack.

Authorities said no case was opened after Saturday’s attack and have urged people who fall victim to the gang to come forward.
