HALIFAX – Police are looking for two men suspected of assaulting a bus driver in Dartmouth and then fleeing.

They say they were called to a bus terminal on Nantucket Avenue at about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday, where they found an injured 44-year-old bus driver.

Police say the driver got out of his vehicle after seeing two young women fighting, but was surrounded by a group of people.

They say three young men assaulted the driver, knocking him to the ground and kicking him in the face, causing minor injuries.

Police described them as two black males and one white male in their late teens and early 20s.

Police arrested an 18-year-old man, who is due in court Wednesday to face charges of assault causing bodily harm, breach of recognizance and possession of a controlled substance.
