E-fit issued of man following bus assault in Lambeth

Police investigating a serious assault on a woman have released an e-fit of a man they want to identify and speak to.

At approximately 16:40hrs on Thursday, 2 June the victim, a woman in her 20s, boarded route 59 or 159 bus in Brixton Road, SW9.

After she boarded, she was confronted by a man she had bumped into earlier. He then launched a sustained assault. The woman managed to get off the bus and seek help. An ambulance was called and she was taken to hospital where it was confirmed she’d suffered two fractures to her eye socket and her injuries required stitches. The attack has also had a major psychological impact on the victim.

Detectives investigating the incident have released an e-fit of the suspect and are asking anyone who recognises this person, or who has any information that could assist this investigation, to get in contact.

You can speak to police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 5031/4June. Alternatively, you can provide information anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

There have been no arrests; enquiries continue.
