Elderly Woman Punched By 14-Year-Old Girl On Bus, CCTV Captures The Assault [Video]

An elderly woman, 87-years-old, was assaulted by two teenage girls during a bus trip in Croydon, London, in mid-October. During the assault, one of the girls punched the woman in the face, leaving her with a black eye.

According to Metro, the actual attack took place on October 16, a Friday, on the Route 166 bus in Croydon, South London. The closed-circuit TV footage revealed the two young teens getting onto the bus. Shortly after, the teens started arguing with the driver after they refused to pay their fare. The elderly woman was drawn into the scuffle as the situation escalated.

During the course of the outburst, the majority of the passengers left the bus in order to avoid confrontation. However, the elderly woman and the bus driver remained on the bus, unable to escape the wrath of the teenage girls. As the teenage girls became more violent, the elderly woman became a victim of the assault as the 14-year-old teenage girl punched her in the face, leaving her with a black eye.

A passenger that remained on the bus decided to come to the elderly woman’s aid after she was punched, to ensure she was not assaulted further and to assist her.
