Police have released an image of a woman they want to speak to, after a passenger allegedly racially abused a Transport for London (TfL) officer on board a 318 bus.
According to Scotland Yard, the suspect got on a bus headed to North Middlesex Hospital at Seven Sisters station at about 7.30am on September 23.
After an officer challenged her for failing to pay her fare she apparently became aggressive, verbally abused him, made racial comments toward him, and continued to refuse to pay her fare.
She then refused to give her details and got off at the next stop.
Pc Dami Ademilola, who is investigating the racially aggravated public order offence, said: “The abuse directed at the young victim in this case left him feeling shocked and shaken - he was simply doing his job.
“Everyone should be able to travel on the bus network without fear of verbal abuse, racial or otherwise. There is no excuse for such offensive behaviour.
“I urge anyone who thinks they know this woman to call police at the earliest opportunity.”
