A Riverside Transit Agency bus driver was hospitalized Wednesday, June 8, after being attacked by a homeless person, the Riverside Police Department said.
The driver suffered minor injuries, said Brad Weaver, an RTA spokesman.
The attack happened at about 2:45 p.m. at University and Brockton avenues. No motive for the assault was announced.
“It appears the suspect who is homeless walked up to a female bus driver who was standing outside her bus and assaulted her,” said Officer Ryan Railsback, a Police Department spokesman. “Security was able to intervene and help detain the suspect.”
The attack happened on Route 22, which runs between Riverside and Perris.
