CCTV images of the bus passengers that police want to speak to in connection with the assault

POLICE want to speak to two people after a man lost some teeth in an assault on a bus.

The Met have released images of two people they want to trace in relation to the incident which happened on June 22 at around 12.40am, and are urging witnesses to help.

Police said the 46-year-old victim attempted to board the 210 bus in Hornsey Road after a night out with a friend, when an altercation occurred with another male passenger who was boarding with a woman at the same stop.

Officers say the suspect punched him in the face, which caused him to fall over, before continuing to punch him and grab him by the throat.

He was treated by the London Ambulance Service, but facial injuries caused during the assault meant he has lost teeth and has required extensive dental work.

Police say the woman pictured was not involved in the assault but was travelling with the suspect.

There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.

Anyone with information is urged to call the police on 07795 052609 or via 101 quoting ref 371/22jun.
