3:00pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
POLICE are appealing for information about an assault on a 13-year-old boy on a bus in Redditch.
It happened on the number 58 Diamond bus in the bus station at the Kingfisher Shopping Centre between 3pm and 4pm on Sunday, September 29.
The offender approached the boy and shouted he wanted “respect” and then hit him in the ribs and face.
The man, who is described as white, in his 30s, and wearing a dark suit and shirt, was escorted off the bus by a security guard.
PC Karen Hyslop of West Mercia Police said: “Although this happened several weeks ago, the bus was packed and we are sure other passengers would remember the incident, but as yet no witnesses have come forward.
“The boy did not suffer any injuries but was shocked at the man’s behaviour as he did not know him and the attack was unprovoked.”
Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to contact PC Hyslop on 101 quoting incident 576-s-290913 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
