The driver of the bus had to pull over as a result of the incident.

PC Christian Lavin said: “The offender has been identified but as yet, the second man who the elderly man shouted at has not reported this incident to the police. I would urge him to come forward

“I would also like to hear from anyone who was on the bus at the time and witnessed this incident.”
