A bus passenger was stabbed and suffered a broken pelvis in an unprovoked attack in which another man was bitten by a dog.

The two men, aged 63 and 55, were on the X30 Handsworth service leaving Sheffield on the Parkway when an altercation broke out with a man and a woman who had got on the bus at Arundel Gate.

They had a Staffordshire bull terrier with them and attacked the two men. The 63-year-old was stabbed in the arm and broke his pelvis. The 55-year-old was bitten on the arm and suffered a cut to his neck.

Their attackers – thought to be in their early twenties – then jumped off the bus and headed across the Parkway in the direction of Park Hill flats.

The incident happened at around 9pm on June 16. South Yorkshire Police are now appealing for witnesses.

This incident appears to have been unprovoked and resulted in both men receiving nasty injuries.

We have carried out extensive enquiries, including reviewing CCTV and interviewing potential witnesses, however this has not led us to a positive identification of the suspects.

It happened on the night that England played Wales in the Euros and we are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
