Bus damaged after confrontation with youths in Eldene

Wiltshire Police is appealing for witnesses after a bus was damaged in Eldene, Swindon on Wednesday 28 December 2016.

Around 6.15pm a bus driver was driving his bus along Eldene Drive when an unknown male stopped on a crossing and started to goad the driver.  The driver got out and asked the youth to move but he refused.

The driver returned to his cab and a bottle of alcohol was then thrown at the side access door window smashing the glass.  The bottle is believed to have been thrown by one of a group of youths who were with this male in the road.

No one was injured in the incident.

Pictures of the people officers would like to speak to in relation to this are attached.

PC Jack Newman said:  “This happened close to the Morrisons store on Eldene Drive, so someone should have seen something.
“Perhaps you were shopping at the time and heard or saw something suspicious around this time – if so please contact me.
“Also, if you recognise anyone in the CCTV images please come forward.”

If you can help with our enquiries please contact PC Jack Newman on 101 or anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111. Contact can also be made via e-mail: [email protected]police.uk
