Police are hunting a boozy thug, who punched another passenger off the late-night bus they were travelling on.
At approximately 11.20pm on Friday, February 5 the suspect boarded a number 93 bus, travelling from Wimbledon to Morden.
He sat on the lower deck where he began drinking from a can of lager.
After a short time he struck up a conversation with the victim, 46, who was standing by the rear door getting ready to get off.
Suddenly and for no apparent reason, the suspect punched the man in the face.
This was with such force the victim fell backwards off the bus and into the street in London Road, Morden.
The attack continued on the pavement before the suspect ran away.
The victim was taken to hospital where he required stitches for injuries to his face.
The suspect is described as white, aged between 20 and 25 years-old, of slim build, about 5ft 5inches tall with dark hair.
He was wearing light coloured jeans, ‘Nike’ trainers, a dark coloured jacket with a fur-rimmed hood and a dark patterned rucksack.
