A local bus driver was attacked last Friday at the bus stop on Calle Reina Sofia in Puerto del Carmen, at the same stop where a previous assault on a bus driver had occurred a few months ago.

According to the victims report to the Guardia Civil, a man had caught the bus on the previous stop and later became angry that the bus was stopping to pick up other passengers at every stop. The man then challenged the driver to a fight.

The bus driver left his seat to try and diffuse the situation when suddenly the aggressor began hitting the driver.

The bus driver didn’t sustain any serious injuries, however, he arrived at a medical centre with bruises on his face and elbow.

The aggressor is yet to be identified by the Guardia Civil.
