The assault took place on a local bus
IN July, as more travellers started using buses in Palma, a couple were asked by the driver of the bus on which they were travelling to stop lowering their masks as they were required by law to keep them on all the time they were on the bus.
As they ignored him on a number of occasions, he stopped the bus at Cala Estancia and told them to get off otherwise he would call the police and although the woman complied with his ultimatum, the man started hurling abuse at the driver and then spat in his face.
So badly was the driver affected by this that he had to take sick leave although happily he was not infected by coronavirus.
Now, after studying various security cameras, officers of the National Police identified the assailant and have arrested the 22-year-old man.
