Detectives have released an image of a man they want to speak to after a bus driver was smashed over the head with half a house brick in a terrifying street robbery.

The father-of-one, 28, who has been a bus driver for seven years, was attacked as he walked along Seasiders Way, in Blackpool.

He was left with bruising to his head and face and, as previously reported in The Gazette, said he would ‘not risk his life by walking to work again’.

Police say he was knocked to the ground at around 4.35am on Monday, June 3.

The offender demanded his mobile telephone but the victim was not carrying one, so he searched the victim’s bag and stole cash before making off across South car park in the direction of Waterloo Road.

Police have now released an Evofit image of a man they want to speak to.

Det Con Gareth Beaty, from Blackpool CID, said: “I’d appeal to anybody that recognises this man to contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

The offender is described as white, 6ft tall, aged in his 20s to 30s, of slim build, with prominent eyes and dark hair. He was wearing a light grey hooded top with stripes across the shoulder and down the sleeves, blue jeans and white trainers.

Call police on 101.
