Aggravated Assault Bus – Modbury

At about 3.00pm on 30th March 2022 the bus driver who is the victim in this matter was driving the 361 bus route when he stopped on the southern side bus stop 42A, which is located on Smart Road, Modbury to pick up passengers.

A man has boarded without wearing a mask when the victim has challenged the suspect, requesting him to put a mask on. A verbal altercation has occurred which has resulted in the bus driver handing the man a face mask.

The bus driver sustained minor lacerations to the left side of his face.
