Detectives investigating a serious assault on a bus driver in Bromley, have released CCTV of the attack.

The footage shows the incident, which took place on Monday, 30 June 2014 at about 17:00 hrs.
The 41-year-old bus driver was driving a route 227 bus on High Street, Penge, when the suspect holding the hand of a child and accompanied by another male with a dog, walked in front of the bus, causing the bus driver to brake hard.

The suspect kicked out at the doors of the bus as it passed, after being challenged by the bus driver.

The victim continued his journey, but was held at a red light signal and saw the suspect running towards the open window of his cab.

The suspect attacked the bus driver with a Stanley knife, causing a puncture wound to his eye, before making off towards Cottingham Road.

The suspect is described as black male, thought to be in his early 20's with afro hair, wearing a bright blue tracksuit.

The bus driver was taken to hospital and received treatment for the wound.

Anyone with information is urged to contact PC Jay Thorn on 020 3054 8978 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting ref 152798.
