Police make appeal after homophobic assault in Lambeth

Police are calling on witnesses after three people assault on London bus in Lambeth


Investigators have released a picture of a person they’d like to talk with in connection to an alleged assault on three passengers on board a London bus.

The assault happened in March, but police are now looking for information on a suspect, who was asked to stop making homophobic remarks by fellow passengers.

The assault happened at around 04:15hrs on Sunday, 25 March on board a N87 bus on Wandsworth Road, SW8.

Members of the public were seated on the top deck of the bus when they overheard the suspect sitting in front of them swearing and making homophobic remarks.

When asked to refrain from making such remarks, the suspect then proceeded to assault three passengers on the bus.

The suspect is described as a black man with a shaved head and goatee beard wearing a smart blue suit, black shoes and grey scarf.


Detective Constable Sarah Bunting of the Met’s Road & Transport Policing Command said, “This man is sought in connection with a homophobic assault on a bus.

“If you know who this man is, or may be able to assist us in our investigation, please call 101 and quote CAD 1045/25Mar18.

“The Met will not tolerate any form of hate crime and we strongly urge anyone who has been a victim of this sort of situation to call police and report it.”
