Appeal after two people assaulted on bus in Sidcup

Officers are releasing an image of a woman they would like to identify after two people were assaulted on a bus in Sidcup.

Detectives from the Met's Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating reports of a disturbance on a Route 229 bus in Sidcup High Street at around 22:30hrs on 27 August 2021.

It was reported that a group of young people boarded the bus and began causing disorder. 

During this, a woman was assaulted. The bus driver was also assaulted as he intervened in an attempt to stop the disturbance. 

Detective Superintendent Michael Dougall, said: "Tackling violence is a top priority for the Met and nobody should have to suffer such an ordeal whilst going about their own business.

"We have already carried out a number of enquiries and we are now in a position to release an image of a woman we would like to identify. I would urge anyone with any information to contact us as soon as possible."

Anyone who recognises the woman, or has any information, is urged to call 101 quoting CAD 7562/27AUG21.
