Police have released images of a man suspected of carrying out attacks and robberies on passengers travelling on a night bus to Wembley last year, leaving one victim needing stitches.

Officers from Brent’s safer transport team are appealing for help in identifying the suspect seen punching a 44-year-old man in the face as he waited to get off a Route N18 bus from Piccadilly to Wembley.

The alleged incident took place on June 11 at around 4:40 am.

After giving the 44-year-old man a bloody nose, the suspect got off the bus and then re-boarded, armed with an object.

He then attempted to attack the victim with the object, who shielded himself with his rucksack. The victim did not require medical treatment.

Passengers witnessing the attack shouted at the suspect who then ran away.

Moments later two other passengers aged 24 and 28 got off the same bus and were assaulted and robbed of their mobile phones by the same suspect.

The 24-year-old suffered cuts to his head and was taken to hospital requiring stitches.

The suspect is described as Middle Eastern man in his 20s with short dark hair and a goatee beard.

He was wearing a camouflage hat and dark clothing.

Officers are appealing for anyone with any information to contact Police Sergeant Chris Simpkins on 020 8733 3856, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting ref 182666.
