Aggravated Assault – Elizabeth Vale (19-25)
At about 1.30 pm on Tuesday, 11th September, 2018 the bus driver on Route 400 picked up three males on Fairfield Road, Elizabeth Grove. One of the males began to continually press the stop button on the bus causing the bus to stop and the males not exit the bus. At Stop 54A on John Rice Ave, Elizabeth Vale the driver stopped the bus and advised the male to stop this behaviour or he would be removed from the bus. The male then racially abused the bus driver. The driver then attempted to radio for assistance to have the male removed from the bus. At this point the male went face to face with the driver yelling at him. The driver pushed the male back which caused the male to fall over. The driver returned to the radio whilst the male lay on the floor of the bus. The male then got up and walked up to the driver and yelled further racial abuse and then exited the bus with the driver. The driver attempted to close the door on the male. The male then spat at the driver and ran off.
The male is described as: Caucasian, distinctive sideburns, short shaved receding hairline and has tattoos on his right forearm, upper arm, on the left hand and on his right lower leg, wearing a black t-shirt, light coloured shorts and blue sports shoes
