A man accused of breaking a bus driver's nose in Surrey last month will remain in custody until at least May 1.

Sean Tyler Quaye, 25, is charged with assault causing bodily harm in connection with the March 26 incident.

He was in Surrey Provincial Court for a brief appearance Tuesday (April 22), and was remanded in custody.

Police say the bus driver was on his route through Guildford when he picked up a man and woman on 72 Avenue near 132 Street. Unprovoked, the man punched the driver in the face. The driver managed to safely pull the bus over, allowing the attacker to flee.

Quaye's next court date is May 1.
