Police have launched an appeal after a ticket inspector was assaulted by a passenger on a bus in Islington when he asked him to show his ticket.
The assault occurred on Thursday September 17 at around 5.50pm, on board a route 73 bus travelling down Essex Road. The 29-year-old victim, a Transport for London Revenue Protection Inspector, was punched and kicked after asking to check a man’s ticket.
He suffered minor injuries, which did not require hospital treatment, however police say the assault may have been more severe had his colleague not intervened.
As part of the appeal police have released an image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man aged about 17-25 years of age. He was wearing a grey cap, with long afro hair tied in a ponytail.
