Walworth man jailed for shouting at bus passengers

A Southwark man has been jailed for eight weeks after shouting at two passengers on a bus.

Ricky Appiah, of Thurlow Street, Walworth, launched an ‘unprovoked’ verbal attack on a couple of bystanders on the 227 to Beckenham on April 18.

A “disturbance” on the route was reported to police, but when they attended the victims did not want to press charges and 27-year-old Appiah had fled the scene.

Following witness statements, Appiah was arrested and pleaded guilty to using threatening words or behaviour likely to cause fear of violence at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on June 4.

Inspector Jas Sandhu said: “We are in the business of safeguarding the travelling public and transport staff.  We will use all tools available to us to bring perpetrators of crimes on the transport network to justice and maintain a safe, low crime transport network for our transport community.”
