Five teenagers have been charged after a bus driver was assaulted in Burwood on Friday.
A group of youths allegedly attempted to rob several passengers before the driver intervened about 7.30pm.
He was struck with a glass bottle and fell to the ground where the assault continued.
The driver sustained facial injuries and was taken to hospital but has since been released.
Eastern Region Division 1 Crime Team and Whitehorse and Monash Crime Investigation Unit detectives jointly investigated the incident which resulted in today’s arrests.
The youths, four males and a female aged between 14-16, have all been charged with affray, assault and other related offences.
Four of the teens have been remanded to appear at a children’s court and one bailed to appear at court at a later date.
