DETROIT, MI – Detroit Police released a video of a woman who assaulted a Detroit Department of Transportation bus driver and they are hoping that the public will be able to provide a name and location to the person who committed this crime.

The Detroit Police Department needs help in locating a suspect wanted in connection with an assault that occurred on the city’s east side.

On December 29, 2019, at approximately 4:15 p.m., in the area of Mack and Bewick, a female suspect walked up from the rear of a Detroit Department of Transportation bus and began throwing food items at the bus driver. The suspect is then observed grabbing the bus driver and then pulling the driver out of her seat while the bus continued to travel westbound on Mack Ave. The bus ultimately collided with an electrical box and a “One Way” street sign causing the bus to come to a stop in a vacant lot located at the corner of Mack and Bewick.

The suspect was restrained by a passenger but later exited the bus through a window and then fled on foot southbound on Bewick between vacant houses located on the Northside of the street. No other injuries have been reported.
