Appeal Following Attack On 74 Bus

Published: Friday 29 December 2023

#APPEAL | Do you recognise this man?

We want to speak to him after another man, aged in his 80s, was punched and kicked after a disagreement over a bus seat.

A woman in her 50s, who tried to come to his aid, was racially abused and then assaulted herself.

It happened on the number 74 bus which was travelling along Soho Road, out of Birmingham, at around 12.45pm on Friday 1 December. The assaults occurred near to Grove Lane.

We are particularly keen to speak to a passenger who boarded near to Waverhill Road, and left at the Grove Lane stop, as they could have important information.
