PAIGNTON, England, July 30 (UPI) -- British police said they are trying to identify a bus passenger recorded by a CCTV camera biting a chunk out of a leather seat.

Police said footage from the No. 12 bus in Paignton recorded the man biting a chunk out of the seat around 8:20 p.m. May 25, causing about $314 worth of damage, The Mirror reported Monday.

"While traveling between Paignton and Torquay on a No. 12 bus, a male passenger started chewing the leather seat he ... sat on and continued to pick at the hole with his hand to make further damage. Around 200 pounds ($314) of damage was caused," a Devon and Cornwall police spokesman said.

The suspect was described as in his late 20s with a stocky build and about 5-foot-9.
