Police are searching for a man who attacked a bus driver mid-afternoon on a busy route through Manor Park.

The man boarded a number 147 bus from the rear doors at around 4pm on November 16 at Browning Road.

When he was challenged by the driver, the suspect opened the door of the cab where he sat and repeatedly kicked the driver in the leg before leaving the bus.

Paramedics treated the driver for minor bruising.

The suspect is described as a black man with short black hair, with a small lump on his forehead. He was wearing a dark coloured top and light trousers.

Anyone with information is urged to contact DC Andy Morland leading the investigation for the Workplace Violence Unit on 0777 503 0912 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
