Halifax Regional Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a young man wanted in relation to the beating of a Halifax Transit bus driver in Dartmouth earlier this month.
Police were called to the Dartmouth bridge terminal around 9:20 p.m. on July 8 in relation to the assault.
The driver saw two females fighting at the terminal, and according to police, left his bus to try and break up the scuffle.
That’s when the driver was surrounded by a group of people, three of whom allegedly knocked him to the ground and began kicking him. The driver suffered minor injuries.
Two men, an 18-year-old from Sackville and a 20-year-old from Halifax, have each been charged with assault causing bodily harm.
Police are still trying to identify the third suspect, and on Tuesday, released an image in hopes the public could identify him.
Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to contact police at 490-5020 or Crime Stoppers.
