Hunt for woman who set fire to passenger’s hair on a bus

Police are appealing for help tracing a woman who set fire to a passenger’s hair on a bus in Camden, London.

An image of the suspect wanted in connection with the assault has now been released in the hope of finding the woman after two months of investigation.

On Sunday, August 30, at around 4.45pm, the suspect boarded a bus on Route 328, and sat at the rear on the lower deck.

The victim, a 33-year-old woman, sat on the seat in front of her.

The woman police want to trace was playing with a lighter and began burning the victim’s hair.

When the distressed 33-year-old attempted to call police the suspect left the bus, shouting “Call the police, send me to jail, I will burn you anyway.”

PC Matt Cannon, investigating, said: “Although the victim didn’t suffer serious injuries, she was understandably shocked and distressed by this incident.

“It was sheer luck that she didn’t suffer burns as a result.

“I am very keen to know the identity of the female shown in the image and urge anyone who can name her to contact police.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 5466/30AUG.
