The incident occurred on Friday, 9 July at around 19:40hrs on board a Route 18 bus in Wembley, heading towards Sudbury.
The victim, a man in his 40s, made his way from the top deck to the rear doors of the bus. When the bus stopped at Flamsted Avenue bus stop, a man boarded the bus and punched the victim in the face. He then got off the bus and walked off towards Harlesden.
