A BUS driver was spat on, punched and threatened with a pair of scissors by a violent, abusive passenger in Cannington yesterday.
Police say the male driver was assaulted after asking the passenger to get off the bus following an argument over the fare.
Cannington detectives are trying to locate a dark skinned man with a solid build and a distinctive cleft palate.
The driver of that bus on Friday, Gerard Sin, was taken to hospital after being hit in the head with a lump of concrete by a gang of youths in Armadale on Friday night. He said the gang of youths wanted to stop the bus "just to cause trouble" and believed one of the youths who kicked out at him could not be more than 16 or 17 years old.

Elsie Hughes woke from a nap in her home in the Perth suburb of Lathlain to find a teenage intruder in her kitchen.

James Mayers received permanent eye damage, a fractured cheek and broken nose when he and his wife were attacked by a teenage gang of 20 Aboriginal youths near the Bayswater railway station. The gang followed Mr Mayers and his wife from the railway station, surrounded the couple and then smashed Mr Mayers to the ground and kicked him repeatedly in the head. Mr Mayers said "It was a very savage beating. I was king-hit and went down . They didn't stop once I was down. They were whipped into frenzy. They were whooping and hollering". Mrs Mayers, who was punched several times, said, "They were like a pack of animals". There were 5 girls in the gang.
Brutal murder and rape
Aboriginals, Ryan Jarrid Kenneally and Bevan Joseph Lawson, brutally assaulted a young South Hedland woman and murdered her fiancée. The woman was sexually assaulted by a bottle wielded by the men.
Her fiancée was then murdered. Kenneally thrust a 20cm kitchen knife through his heart with such force it came out his back. He died almost immediately.
Both men decided the woman had to be killed because she was a witness. Kenneally said to her, "You know what is going to happen to you", and then slit her throat.
The woman pretended to be dead. The men stabbed her again, hit her in the back and left. The woman survived and was able to identify her attackers.
Police have released details of a violent assault on three young women in Perth's southern suburbs.
"Four males have jumped out of the car - two females were still in the car we believe - demanded the handbags, threatened them with a wheel brace, tried to strike one with the wheel brace, she ducked and it missed but then they've punched them in the face and forcibly choked them until they've given over the handbags," he said.
"Police are looking for a dark skinned male, approximately 15 to 18 years of age, 165 centimetres tall, skinny build, wearing a white cap and baggy white-hooded jumper," he said.
"Three other males, who are aged between 12 and 15 years, of similar appearance."
Two youths have pushed a blind woman to the ground, robbed her and dragged her along the street outside her Perth home, police say.
Sergeant Greg Lambert said the legally blind 63-year-old who relies on a walking stick was waiting outside her house in suburban Belmont when she was attacked just after 10am (WST) on Monday.
"One of the youths pushed the woman in the back, causing her to lose balance and fall to the ground," Sgt Lambert said.
"Whilst on the ground, the woman was punched in the stomach before one of the youths grabbed hold of her handbag," he said.
Police say the 35-year-old was walking towards a student housing complex when she was approached by three males near a bus station.
When the woman was about 100 metres from the bus station one of the three men attacked her, striking in the face and head a number of times.
The man fled and the woman student was taken to Royal Perth Hospital and treated for cuts to her face, split lips, chipped teeth and bruising to both eyes, one of which was completely closed.
Police are calling for witnesses - they say they are looking for three dark-skinned males, one of whom was wearing a black and grey hooded jumper and blue jeans
