Police are appealing for witnesses after an irate passenger assaulted a tram driver in Coburg North.

Police say the man then slid open the side window to the driver’s carriage and yelled at the driver.

He then hit the glass window with an iron object, causing it to shatter all over the driver.

The tram driver was treated for minor injuries.
