Welling mum speaks out after bus driver allegedly ignored her during brutal attack

A WELLING mum has spoken about the "disgusting" way a bus driver allegedly ignored her pleas for help during a brutal bus attack.

Dee Odysseos, of Central Avenue, said she was ignored three times as she begged him to call the police with blood pouring out of her mouth.

The 40-year-old is "traumatised" and has a permanent scar after being attacked by a man on an 89 bus while she was on her way to collect her son from school. Her assailant has not yet been found.

The mum-of-two told News Shopper: "It is disgusting. I am more upset with the conductor than the man who hit me because the conductor did not even have the decency to look at me.

"I asked him three times, I had blood pouring out my mouth and he never even looked in my direction."

The mum-of-two believes the violence occurred because she got on the bus in front of the man, after running for it.

She said: "I could hear the man behind me swearing at me because he thought I’d pushed in.
"Then he hit me as I was going up the stairs and split my lip.

"The guy started to turn it around on me and said, ‘why are you hitting me’ but a woman on the bus challenged him about this because they had seen what had happened and said, ‘you hit her’.

"I had to go to hospital and now have a permanent scar, just above my lip."

Despite contacting the bus company and the police following the incident on December 12 last year, Ms Odysseos is still waiting to hear of developments.

"I rang the Go Ahead bus company at the Bexley bus and they said the driver couldn’t contact the police because at that same moment, he was receiving a message on the system which blocked outgoing calls. It seems a bit of a coincidence."

Bexley Police are appealing for witnesses.

A spokesman said: "The 40-year-old victim boarded the route 89 bus travelling in the direction of Slade Green in Bellegrove Road, Welling at approximately 3pm on 12 December 2013."

A Go Ahead Bus company spokesman added: "The CCTV on the bus was passed to the local police.

"The driver was dealt with in line with company policy and information relayed to TfL.

"They in turn responded to the complaint from the lady."

Unfair to assume he wasn't doing his best. Not the driver's job to get out of his cab & more than a fair point about the ibus system. Rather than rant & rave about the society that produce the moronic idiot who hit her, she'll pick on the bus driver because he's an easy target.

Bus drivers are not there to protect the public, I should know. Been assulted by one, for nothing when I was younger. I asked a bus driver to call the police because of annoying gypo teenagers, he looked at me like I was an alien. Seen a bus driver, last bus of the night; because these young revelers ran across the road to catch that last bus, the driver just carried on instead of picking up passengers. I helped a bus driver with an idiot car driver who pulled the bus over, (long story) but the bus driver was in the correct. Being a bus driver today has to be the most depressing job compared to years ago. It's not the bus drivers job to protect the public in a public space, it's down to the police.

Drivers are not allowed to leave their cab and if a call is coming in ove the radio he wouldnt have been able to make a call out.

If she was running for the bus she must have noticed if anyone was already queuing. Im sorry but the whole he though i pushed in bit doesnt make sense she would know as she had to run for the bus in the first place.

I dont agree he should have hit her but perhaps she needs to think about her own actions bfore pointing the finger at others especially when she could have prevented the whole incident by using some manners in the first place

From the way the article portrays, it sounds like she jumped the queue and came across the wrong person to push in front of, you can't blame him for being a tad cross with her, like a lot of others, she should learn to wait her turn as was in the polite good old days in England. Then to blame it on the driver because he was in the middle of something else at the time and didn't jump when she thought he should is not his fault, he only had one pair of hands and they are needed to try and drive the big red bus properly!!!!!!

she should not push in. but weather she did or not. does not make it right that she got hit in the way that she did.

I'm pretty sure he could have called them. To not even look at someone who is asking for help is disgusting.

A driver will get sacked if they use there mobile phone while in the cab no matter what reason they use it for. If a call is coming in on the radio you can not call out until that call is finished. Also did she not have a mobile phone nor anyone else on the bus

I totally agree with you, there are lots of people out there lacking decent manners and morals however, life is too short to get angry with someone just for pushing in front of you at a bus stop so long as I can still board the bus (when I get the bus) then I couldn’t care less. All because someone lacks manners doesn’t mean I have to then scoop to their level and cause an argument or a scene in front of other passengers and delay their travel any more than necessary.

Instead of worrying about what the driver should have done, be more concerned about the lack of manners and politeness that is getting bigger and bigger by the day in 'Jolly old England'........... Please also sort out the eyebrows..........[/p][/quote]That sounds like you were the to witness her oushing in, where you? Given we only have her side, but until the guy is found and explains what happened I belive that she didn't push in and he just got impatient. And it is no excuse to assualt someone. PurpleMan

A driver will get sacked if they use there mobile phone while in the cab no matter what reason they use it for. If a call is coming in on the radio you can not call out until that call is finished. Also did she not have a mobile phone nor anyone else on the bus
No one is accusing the bus driver I personally take my hat off to anyone who drives a bus as they take some stick from all walks of life on a daily basis however, the bus belongs to 'Go ahead" and therefore the company and the driver have the responsibility for the safety off all the passengers onboard that bus. As for not using a mobile within the cab because they can get sacked I’m sorry but, any human being witnessing any form of assault would use their mobile or maybe that’s just me having a care in the community approach???
The driver did not witness the assault she went to the driver after. And I would not get myself sacked because someone got hit maybe if she was taking a beating yeah. The driver has bills to pay and kids to feed why would he risk his job because someone with no manners got a slap round the chops.

This would have been easily solved had the lady apologised to the man in the first place for pushing in. There is of course no excuse to going round hitting people.
How can you be so sure that she did push in front of him? Also, why didn't he let her on first, doesn't cost anything to have nice manners.
She admits (boasts?) that she pushed in
