Cyclist assualts Brisbane bus driver

by CyclingTips

On the flip side of the above video is a cyclist assaulting a bus driver in Brisbane. The cyclist, described as a male in his 50s, apparently took issue with how the driver was operating his bus.

When the bus stopped on Adelaide Street between Creek Street and Faber Lane the cyclist approached the driver, who is in his 60s, and exchanged words.

The situation escalated with the cyclist slapped the driver across his face with one of his gloves. Soon after the cyclist charged the driver in his seat and punched him several times, leaving the driver with a number of facial injuries, according to Queensland police.

The cyclist then fled the scene on his bicycle. He is described as being aged in his 50s, approximately 175-180 centimetres tall, with grey hair and an athletic build.

Queensland police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
