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

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.
