Bus driver assaulted in Hatfield
A BUS driver was assaulted after getting into an argument with a passenger over an expired bus pass.
The attack took place on Tuesday, November 17, just after 5pm.
A passenger had attempted to get on board the UNO bus using a pass that had expired in June. The driver, a 42-year-old man from St Albans, took the pass off the passenger, explaining it was no longer valid.
The passenger then paid the fare and got on board.
But at the bus stop for the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane campus in Hatfield, the passenger grabbed the bus driver’s arm, and removed the confiscated bus pass from the victim’s shirt pocket.
