Police are on the hunt for a man accused of spitting on a Transport Canberra bus driver because his bus had not arrived on time.

Around 2 pm on 14 December, a bus travelling on route 27 picked up a man near the Woden Town Centre. The man appeared agitated and told the driver he was annoyed because a previous bus hadn’t arrived as scheduled.

As he got off the bus on Badimar Street, Waramanga, he verbally abused the driver and spat on them. The man then walked around to the driver’s side of the bus before spitting on and hitting the driver’s window.

The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, approximately 30­-40 years old, unshaven with dark brown hair. He was wearing blue jeans and a blue polo shirt with a white collar, white sneakers, and was carrying a plastic bottle.

Police are urging anyone who may have any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
