This time a Route 7 bus driver was punched in the face and bitten on the finger at 16th & Cherry St.
Does anyone have any constructive suggestions on what can be done besides on-board cameras and protective shields like this one?
One day after we updated the previously reported story about a 52 bus driver being beaten by three punk kids, we now have some new details about a 7 bus driver who asked a rider to quiet down her screaming toddler. The rider reacted by spitting on the bus driver and hit him over the head with an umbrella before getting off the bus at 23rd and Fairmount Ave. Completely unjustifiable. The rider, Tiffany Alexander, 25, was charged with aggravated assault.
