- Credit: Archant
A man who head-butted a bus driver is being hunted by police.
Officers have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the assault which happened on board a route 390 bus in Highgate Hill, Archway.
The bus was stationary and out of service in order for the drivers to change over ahead of the incident at around 10am on Saturday, November 24.
But the suspect had remained on the bus and refused to alight when asked to do so by the new driver.
The driver then asked his colleague to call the police, at which point he was head butted by the man, who then fled.

The victim sustained an injury to his nose and was treated at Homerton Hospital for bruising and swelling.
Officers from the Transport for London and Metropolitan Police Service Safer Transport Command Workplace Violence Unit are now asking for the public’s help in identifying the man in the CCTV image released this week.
