Premier visits bus driver attacked by passenger

Premier David Burt visits bus driver, Peter Ramotar, who was assaulted earlier this week by an abusive passenger

The Premier today visited a bus driver who was assaulted by an abusive passenger.

Mr Burt said on twitter: “I took some time to visit my friend, Mr Peter Ramotar at his home where he is recovering from an assault that occurred while doing his job transporting primary school students home.

The Government is committed to keeping bus operators safe & I wish Mr Ramotar a fast recovery.”

Mr Ramotar was punched and kicked in the head after he tried to get a passenger who was abusive to youngsters off his bus.

The assault happened around 4pm on Tuesday at the junction of St. David’s and Battery Roads, St. George’s.

A police spokesman said at the time that a 55-year-old man was assisting police with their inquiries.
