The female suspect got on a bus travelling from Wirksworth to Derby at about 7.30am on Saturday.

During the journey, she assaulted the 80-year-old woman - by banging her head on a seat.

When the bus reached Belper, the offender stepped off then attacked a second woman by pushing her to the ground.
