11:13am 17th March 2014
York police are appealing for information after an assault in the city.
It occurred at around 10.25am on Sunday 16 March 2014, at a bus stop on Green Lane, Acomb, involving the 56-year-old driver of the bus and a man who had been a passenger, when the man tried to get back onto the bus.
As a result of the incident the victim suffered a bite injury to his back and a black eye. He received treatment at York District Hospital.
The suspect, who boarded the bus outside York Railway Station, is described as a white man, aged in his late teens or early twenties, around 5ft 10in to 5ft 11in tall, with a slim build and short dark hair. At the time he was wearing a dark blue top and jeans, with gold trim around the back pockets. He was carrying a purple JD Sports bag.
PC Antony Lockey-Smith, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This was a shocking and unprovoked assault, which has left the victim understandably very shaken.
“If you have any information which could help to identify the man responsible, and have not yet contacted the police, I urge you to do so straight away.”
Anyone who can assist with this investigation should contact York police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Antony Lockey-Smith. Alternatively, information can be emailed to email@example.com.
