Police are appealing for witnesses following an incident on a North Devon bus on the Saturday evening (September 1).

Officers have arrested two teenagers following the incident, which involved five youths on a number 21 Stagecoach bus, travelling between Braunton and Barnstaple.

Police said the group was causing a nuisance, leading to the bus being stopped and the driver asking those involved to leave, at around 9.45pm.

A police spokesman said: “During this time a number of incidents took place including theft of bus takings, assault of a female passenger, and other public order offences.”

Police have arrested two boys in connection with this incident.

A 15-year-old boy from Lynton has been released on police bail until September 24.

A 16-year-old boy from Barnstaple has released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Officers believe there were a number of passengers on the bus who are potential witnesses, and have yet to have come forward to speak to police.

If you were on the bus and have any information that can assist police with their investigation, please email 101@dc.police.uk quoting crime reference CR/080429/18.
