Police looking for woman who allegedly assaulted a bus driver in Guildford

SURREY — Police are looking for a woman accused of punching a Surrey bus driver in the face for not  allowing her to bring her scooter aboard.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the driver’s injuries were minor. The incident happened at the Guildford Bus Exchange, in the 15100-block of 104th Avenue, at 6:25 p.m. Jan. 30th.

“No one should have to endure this kind of treatment in the workplace,” Schumann said. “We’re hopeful that someone will recognize the suspect so police can move forward with the investigation.”

The suspect is white, about 40 years old, and has short curly black hair. She was wearing a purple “puffy” jacket and had with her a two-wheeled blue scooter with cream-coloured wheels.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
