A MAN kicked a woman on a bus after an argument before punching her in the face after they jumped off.

The incident happened around 10.15pm on Sunday on a number 35 Lothian bus.

The pair were seen having an altercation on the bus and the man kicked the woman before they both got off at Dundee Street.

After walking in the direction of Fountain Park, the man then punched the woman, who fell to the ground.

Passers-by stopped to assist the woman and she was helped into a black taxi. The man got into another taxi by himself and headed eastwards.

Police now want to trace the pair and have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We have as yet been unable to trace the man and woman involved in this altercation, and no witnesses have come forward either.

“We are keen to establish the wellbeing of the woman, and therefore anyone who thinks they may have witnessed this incident are urged to come forward and contact police.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, or Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.
