Man flashes V-sign after punching bus driver in Tuen Mun

A passenger punched a Kowloon Motor Bus (KMB) driver after complaining that the bus had skipped his stop, Sing Tao Daily reported Monday.

The 34-year-old passenger, surnamed Shek, reportedly forgot to press the bell before his stop.

Shek was furious when the No. 60X bus from Jordan reached the Tuen Mun Central bus terminus at 8 p.m. Sunday, the report said.

He used foul language on the 52-year-old driver, surnamed Liu, and punched his face.

Liu fell to the ground with an injury to his left eye.

As other passengers took photos of the fallen driver, the attacker stood in front of the camera and gave a V-sign.

Fellow bus drivers called police, who arrested Shek on suspicion of common assault.

A KMB representative condemned the violence against the driver and said the company will assist the police in their investigation of the case.

On July 9, a KMB driver at a terminus in Tin Shui Wai was slapped and pushed by a passenger who had been told bus services were suspended because of an incoming storm.
