Detectives would like to speak to this man after a bus driver sustained head injuries when he was attacked by a fare evader in Cricklewood.

The driver was assaulted by a man who got on a 266 bus at Cricklewood Broadway through the rear doors without paying or touching in with an Oyster card.

After the suspect went upstairs the driver followed him and when he asked to see the man’s ticket he hurled a tirade of abuse at him and chased him downstairs.

Before leaving the bus he kicked the driver’s cab door which hit him in his head.

The driver was taken to hospital where he received stitches.

The suspect is a black man, wearing a light coloured baseball cap, wearing a black jacket.

The attack took place on November 12 last year but the image of the suspect has been released today.
