Victorian Police Chief Shane Patton strikes attack on Melbourne bus attack against Doveton

One woman has been left with a brain injury and two others were injured after a “cowardly” attack on a bus in Melbourne.

Police are still searching for the group of men allegedly behind a “cowardly” attack on a Melbourne bus last month, which left a woman with a traumatic brain injury.

Three women were allegedly kicked and beaten by a group of about eight men while on a bus from Dandenong Railway Station to Doveton around 1 p.m. 19.40 on 26 February.

One of the victims suffered a minor traumatic brain injury and a broken nose, while the other two were left with bruises.

Victoria Police Chief Shane Patton described the attack as “cowardly” and “ridiculous” as he spoke to 3AW on Tuesday.

“It was actually a very serious attack,” Mr Patton said.

“For something like this to happen on public transport is just awful, obviously very disturbing.”

Investigators have released a picture of two men who may be able to help with investigations.

Sir. Patton urged anyone with information to line up.

“We still do not have the offenders for it (the attack),” he said.

“Local detectives are trying to identify the perpetrators and they have set up some footage.”

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report via their website.
