– Detective Constable Kyla Mulley, Lambeth CID
This was a shocking attack by a man on a young woman, prompted by nothing more than a brief exchange of words.
It is vital we track down this man and hold him to account for his behaviour.
After the assault, the suspect got off the bus and headed towards Lambeth Walk. The victim, who has not been named, was taken to St Thomas' Hospital with a head injury and released later that day.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man of slim build. He is approximately 20-years-old and wearing a black T-shirt with a patterned pocket on the chest, dark trousers and a baseball cap worn back to front.
A woman has been knocked unconscious after a violent attack on a bus in Lambeth. The 22-year-old was heading towards Clapham Junction when a man got on, and headed towards the back of the bus where the victim was sitting.
A can of drink was poured over the victim who was then kicked in the stomach before falling unconscious. Police are trying to find a man seen on CCTV around the time of the attack.
