[Do you know these people?]

Detectives are appealing for help to identify two people following an unprovoked assault onboard a bus in Wandsworth.

At approximately 02:30hrs on Friday, 3 August, the four suspects were travelling on a Route 344 bus on Battersea Park Road close to Latchmere Road. As they were getting off the bus, they attacked a 29-year-old female passenger.

One of the suspects hit the woman around the face with a small metal pole; two of the suspects also spat at her.

Officers from the Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating.

They would like to hear from anyone who recognises either of the suspects from the CCTV stills or who was on the bus and is yet to come forward and speak with officers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers via 101 quoting reference 773/3Aug. Alternatively, they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Two girls - aged in their mid-teens - were interviewed in October in connection with the assault. They have since been released under investigation.
