Bus driver attacked in Oberstedten

A bus driver in Oberstedten suffered lacerations after being attacked by two young men on Sunday, 22nd December, at around 9.20pm.

An argument had broken out between the driver and the two passengers after they had started hitting the windows inside the bus.  After the men left the bus in the Bergweg they continued to bang on the windows from the outside, at which point the driver also got out to have words with them.

A fight ensued and the 45-year-old driver was hit in the face a number of times.  As a result of his injuries he was taken to hospital for stitches.

The men are both described as being between 19 and 22 years old, 1.80m tall, and wearing dark clothes.  After the attack they both quickly left the scene and police have as yet been unable to trace them.
