A man who died in Wollongong earlier this month has now been identified.

About 12.15pm on Thursday (7 July 2022), emergency services were called to Stuart Park, Wollongong, after reports of a concern for welfare.

Officers attached to Wollongong Police District attended, along with NSW Ambulance paramedics, who treated a man who is believed to have suffered a medical episode while riding a bicycle.

Despite their efforts, the man died at the scene.

Initial inquiries failed to identify the man as he wasn’t carrying any identification.

Following a public appeal for information, and assistance provided by forensic and facial recognition specialists, the man has been identified as a 79-year-old local.

The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious.

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
