MBTA police looking for suspect in Chelsea bus assault
CHELSEA, Mass. (WHDH) -- MBTA Transit police are looking for a man accused of assaulting a bus driver and causing a wreck on the road.
Police released surveillance video of the incident from Chelsea on Sunday night. A male passenger boarded the bus and swiped his Charlie Card, but it was not enough to pay for the ride.
The man then got in the bus driver’s face and began arguing with him as the bus started moving. The bus veered off the road and crashed into a row of parked cars. Three cars were damaged and the bus driver was taken to the hospital for a minor hand injury.
“We're looking for that male to come forward. We want to hear his side of the story but also identify him and the female that is depicted that was with him; we ask her to come forward as well as any other people on the bus,” said Supt. Joseph O’Connor, MBTA Transit Police.
