Police Officers from the joint Transport for London and Metropolitan Police Service Safer Transport Command Workplace Violence Unit are appealing for help in identifying a man following an assault on a bus driver in Wandsworth.

The incident occurred on Friday 5 October 2012 at about 11:30pm on a route 264 bus in Tooting High Street SW17. A group of youths boarded the bus, but only two of the group produced Oyster Cards. The driver challenged the group, who all alighted the bus. The suspect re-boarded and proceeded to spray a liquid at the driver through the holes in the protective screen before making off.

The driver did not require medical treatment.

The suspect is described as a black teenager, wearing a black jacket, hooded jumper and black trousers.

Anyone with information is urged to contact DC Fay Brown leading the investigation for the Workplace Violence Unit on 0203 054 6181 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
