Man racially attacks and spits at woman on 114 bus

Police are continuing to appeal for information after a woman was spat at and racially abused on a bus earlier this year.

The incident happened after a man boarded a 114 bus at Kenton Road on January 25, a 3pm.

Metropolitan Police say that while on the bus, the man assaulted, spat at and racially abused a 65-year-old woman.

Although the victim did not suffer lasting injuries, she was in shock and distress from the attack.

The man is described as Asian, aged between his 60s and 70s, around 5ft 8inches tall, and of a chubby build.

He was seen with a stick and pulling a shopping trolley.

Police have released an image of a man they would like to speak to.

Detective Constable Stuart Giddings of the Roads and Transport Policing Command said: “This was a truly shocking and spontaneous attack on a woman who was sitting on the bus minding her own business.

“This type of behaviour cannot go unchecked and I would ask people to look at the image and see if they recognise this man then do the right thing and contact police.”

Anyone who can identify this man is asked to contact police by calling 101, 07826 535 577 or Tweet @MetCC quoting Cad 4623/25Jan.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit crimestoppers-uk.org.
