Police release images of man after bus driver assaulted in Lambeth

Police have released images of a man they wish to speak with after a bus driver was assaulted.

At around midday on July 20, 2020, a bus driver was taking a break when a man boarded the bus and punched him in the face in Atkins Road, Lambeth.

The 43-year-old driver attended hospital where he was treated for serious facial injuries.

Officers have established that a motorcyclist had earlier been involved in an altercation with the victim at a set of traffic lights.

PC Nick Kortright, from the Roads and Policing Command, said: “This was a completely unprovoked attack which has left the victim with an eye injury. As a professional driver, this is clearly of significant concern to him.

“I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV stills to contact us.”

Anyone with information should contact the RTPC via 101 or @MetCC.
