On 31 December 2016, at around 1.00pm, three Bus Captains - one driving Service 93 and two others driving Service 129 - were physically assaulted in separate incidents by a Chinese male commuter who had boarded their buses along Bartley Road.
The assailant slapped and hit our Bus Captains. They have been taken off duty to rest for the next two days and get medical treatment.
We do not tolerate such uncalled acts of violence against our staff and we take a serious view of such acts. The attacks were deliberate and malicious and we will not spare any effort to ensure that the assailant is caught. We are working closely with the Police to this end.
We have identified the assailant through our CCTVs on the buses and have given the footage to the Police to assist in this case.
Meanwhile we have alerted all our Bus Captains and Traffic Inspectors on these assault cases and to be on a lookout for the assailant. We would also like to appeal to members of the public to assist by contacting the Police if they have any information.
Update 2 January 2017
A 23-year-old man is now helping the Police in their investigations.
