Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

ROCKINGHAM po­lice say this man (pic­tured on the left) can help them with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter an in­ci­dent where a bus driver was spat at and abused on March 20.

About 4.30pm a bus stopped in Warnbro and a man boarded, ask­ing for a con­ces­sion ticket.

Po­lice said he was de­nied a con­ces­sion ticket be­cause he did not have a con­ces­sion card. They fur­ther al­leged the man ver­bally abused the driver.

Po­lice said when the man was asked to leave the bus he reached be­hind the driver’s cage, took money and threw it at pas­sen­gers on board.

They said he then stepped back­wards and spat on the bus driver be­fore get­ting off the bus.

Po­lice have re­leased images of a man who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

He is light-skinned, about 25 to 30 years old, ap­prox­i­mately 175cm tall, of a medium build with short brown hair and stub­ble on his face.

He was last seen wear­ing a yel­low flu­oro shirt with a col­lar, black shorts and black work boots.
