      Transit Police are seeking the public's assistance a month after a woman was assaulted while riding the bus.

      It occurred around 7:30 p.m. on a bus travelling north on Main Street on June 20.

      A male passenger who boarded at Marine Drive moved inches in front of her face, threatening to punch her, according to a Transit Police news release.

      After she asked the bus driver for help, he followed her to the front of the vehicle and allegedly punched her in the face, sending her coffee spilling across the floor.

      “Fortunately the victim did not sustain any serious physical injuries in this shocking, unprovoked attack," Const. Amanda Steed said in the news release. "Everyone has the right to arrive at their transit destination safely, and without the fear of harassment or assault. We are reaching out to the public with the hope that someone recognizes this suspect.” 

      Below, you can see video of the assault. Anyone with information is being urged to call 604-515-8300 or text 87.77.77.
