Pair wanted over unrelated attacks on borough buses
Male suspect punched man while teenage girl assaulted woman
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.
