A First Midlands bus driver was robbed at gunpoint in Northampton.

His vehicle, which was operating on route 29, was parked at the bus stop on Avon Drive, Kings Heath at about 1830hrs last Monday (February 27th) when the offender pushed the emergency stop button at the back of the bus.

The offender then approached the driver window and pointed a gun at the driver and demanded money.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “The offender handed the driver a orange carrier bag, in which the driver inserted money. The offender then punched the driver in the face and ran off.”

The offender is described as male, approximately six foot tall, wearing a black hooded top.
