Police have launched a search for a man they want to question in regards to an attack on a bus.
NHS Track and Trace worker attacked on bus: A 63-year-old NHS Track and Trace worker was assaulted by the man after he boarded the bus at Seven Sisters station. And his attacker got on at the next stop at around 9.45pm on 23rd August Scotland Yard detectives have said in a statement.
A few minutes later the victim was punched to the floor and had his head stamped on five times. Roads and Transport Policing Command officer, PC Bowman, said that although the CCTV footage had no sound and the victim only remembers waking up in hospital, they believe the attack happened over face masks. As you can clearly see the covered victim move away from the attacker who was only wearing his mask under his chin.
We think the attacker took offense to this gesture. You can clearly see the attacker follow the victim to the back of the bus and start pointing at him. At which stage punches are thrown and the victim falls to the ground. He went on to say that this was a vicious and unprovoked attack and police urgently want to speak to this man. From the footage the alleged attacker is described as an athletically built young black man in his mid-twenties. And police have released an image of the man they want to question over the attack.
