Assault and attempted robbery of bus driver
Friday 6th May, 2005

Detectives in Leigh are appealing for the public's help in tracing two men who viciously assaulted a bus driver in Wigan on Thursday 5 May 2005.

At around 12.45pm the 362 Arriva bus was travelling along Preston Road in Standish on the route from Wigan to Chorley. As the bus pulled into one of the stops along the road two men, who are only described as being white aged between 20 & 30 years-old, got off the bus. As they passed the bus driver they punched him a number of times in the face before trying to steal cash from him.

The two men were unsuccessful in their attempts and left the bus empty handed.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who was on the bus at the time of the incident or who was on Preston Road they may have seen the two men running from the bus to contact them at Leigh CID on 0161 856 7248.

Information can also be given to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
