<Anchor> A

man who was denied boarding while trying to get on a bus without a mask assaulted the bus driver and ran away.

The victim suffered serious injuries that broke the bones around his eyes, but when he caught the assailant, he was a wanted person who had already been pursued by the police for another assault case.

This is the exclusive report by reporter Jeong Ban-seok.

<Reporter> The

bus stop in Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul around midnight on the 7th.

A man kicks a bus that is just leaving and stops it.

He was denied boarding because he was not wearing a mask, and he has an argument with the bus driver.

When the driver picks up the phone and tries to call the police, he punches him in the face.

[Damaged bus driver: I smelled a lot of alcohol while stepping on my feet.

'Do you want to do it with me?'

He was intimidating while swearing unspeakably, so he was assaulted while reporting to the policeā€¦

.] He

seems to leave the scene after indiscriminate assault, then runs again as if his anger is not resolved and punches and kicks the staggering knight one after another.

Even at a passerby who witnessed the assault and protested, he suddenly swung his fist and pushed him in a threatening position.

The bus driver, who had come to his senses, followed the man who assaulted him, but had already run away.

[Damaged bus driver: Under the eye (fracture), the nose bone is cracked and I have not been able to work for a week.

I think it will take some time to recover after surgery.] The

police tracked down the man who ran away through CCTV analysis, etc. and confirmed the identity.

A man in his 50s was a wanted person for whom an arrest warrant had already been issued for an assault case he had committed in the past.

The police had difficulties in securing new recruits because Mr. A moved from one inn to another, and the residence was unclear, but he succeeded in arresting him only today, eight days after the crime.

The police plan to apply for an arrest warrant for A by applying the charge of assaulting a driver under the Act on Aggravated Punishment for Specific Crimes.
