Police are appealing for help in identifying a man following an assault on a bus shunter in Hackney.
The incident occurred on November 11 at around 1.30am on a route 242 bus, which had terminated and returned to Clapton bus garage, Mare Street in Hackney.
The victim, a bus shunter, who took over from the driver to refuel and make the bus ready for its next journey, found the suspect asleep.
He woke the male who is then said to have become verbally abusive and refused to alight, before attacking the transport worker, repeatedly punching him in the head and kicking him in the back and then making off.
The victim was taken to hospital to be treated.
