Bus driver slashed across the face


A disruptive passenger who managed to get himself inside a minibus, ended up stabbing the vehicle’s driver after being told to get out of the bus for unruly behavior.

The bus driver after seeing the man behaving a manner unlike that of an ordinary passenger told the suspect to get out; however, instead of exiting the bus the man approached the bus driver, slashed him across the face, and took $95 from the victim.

The bus driver was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment. Paterson Police are looking for the slasher who is being described as Hispanic male, about 6 feet tall, and weighing at 160 pounds — he goes by the street name “Budda”.
