Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A MAN and a woman are be­ing hunted over two sep­a­rate as­saults aboard Hilling­don buses.

A 34-year-old man was re­peat­edly punched while trav­el­ling on a N207 bus on Uxbridge Road to­wards Hayes, leav­ing him un­con­scious and with lim­ited vi­sion for weeks af­ter the in­ci­dent in the early hours of Oc­to­ber 4, 2015.

The sus­pect is white, aged be­tween 20 and 25, slim and with short curly hair and a scruffy beard.

He fled be­fore po­lice ar­rived and the Lon­don Am­bu­lance Ser­vice at­tended. The vic­tim was taken to Eal­ing Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment and was dis­charged later that day.

In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, also on Oc­to­ber 4, a 35-year-old woman was at­tacked by a teenage girl at around 1.40pm on a 427 bus trav­el­ling to­wards Hayes.

The sus­pect boarded with a group of peo­ple at Hilling­don Hill and be­gan to ar­gue with the driver.

The vic­tim com­plained about the sus­pect hold­ing up the bus, at which point the sus­pect grabbed the vic­tim’s hair and punched her in the head.

Fel­low pas­sen­gers in­ter­vened and re­strained the girl while the vic­tim got off the bus.

As she made her way to a nearby pub, to take refuge, she was fol­lowed by the group and the same girl threw a bot­tle at her, which caused a cut to her face.

The Lon­don Am­bu­lance Ser­vice at­tended and the woman was taken to Hilling­don Hos­pi­tal, where her wound was stitched. She was re­leased later that day.

The sus­pect is white, aged 13 to 15 with long blonde hair. She was wear­ing a black top and grey trousers.

The in­ci­dents are not linked.
