On Saturday night (10th January), the bus driver of the 54A (Tallaght to Eden Quay) route was assaulted by two people who wanted to get off early before a stop.

After the driver told them to wait he was spat at. When he stopped the bus and left his cabin to go and contact gardai he was viciously attacked as the row spilled onto the street.

Two men who were upstairs in the bus, went to help the driver. One of the assailants jumped back on the bus and drove it at a slow speed for a very short distance and jumped out of the bus. Then one of the men helping the bus driver jumped on the bus and managed to stop it.

The gardaí arrived and arrested those involved. The latest on this incident, one of the men has been charged with assault.
