Police want to speak to this man in connection with the incident in Finsbury.


Police are appealing for help in identifying two men following an assault on a night bus driver in Finsbury.

The attack happened just before 2am on November 14 in Yardley Street, on board the route N38 bus travelling towards Walthamstow Central.

A row erupted between a group of passengers and as the bus driver went to intervene, he was attacked with a number of punches to the head and face. He did not require medical treatment.

Officers from the joint Transport for London and Metropolitan Police Service Safer Transport Command Workplace Violence Unit are now trying to trace the two men pictured as part of their enquiries.

Both men were white with light coloured hair, with one wearing a beige jumper and trousers and the other a grey jumper and dark trousers.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Det Con Karen Hagen leading the investigation for the Workplace Violence Unit on 0203 054 4569 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
