A teenage boy was repeatedly punched in the face during an attempted robbery on a bus in north London.

Police today released a CCTV image of a male they would like to identify after the attack on the number 149 travelling towards Edmonton Green from Seven Sisters Station.

The victim said a man he didn’t know sat next to him and asked: “What have you got for me?”

He put his hands in the boy’s pockets in an attempt to steal his belongings around 8pm on Thursday, February 11.

The suspect then launched an attack on the teenager, punching him several times in the face.

He left the bus on Fore Street, opposite Edmonton Police station, and walked along Bridge Street towards nearby Bedevere Road.

The attacker is described as black, around 17-years-old, 5ft 7ins to 8ins tall and of skinny build.

He was wearing a beanie hood, black jacket and black tracksuit.

Anyone who recognises the suspect, is urged to call police on 101, quoting CAD 6654/11FEB.
