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.
