A TEENAGER was left with a cut forehead after being racially attacked on a Catford bus.

The 18-year-old Kosovan was sitting on the top deck of a 185 bus in Catford Road when another passenger made racial comments about him before punching him in the head.

His attacker left the bus and ran off in the direction of Thomas Lane. A witness said he was driven away in a dark blue saloon car.

He was black, around 20, of slim build, with cropped brown hair, and wore a dark blue jacket.
