Authorities Asking for Help to Identify Suspect who Attacked VVTA Bus Driver

PHELAN – A Victor Valley Transit bus driver sustained major injuries after being attacked by an unidentified male suspect.

The attack occurred on December 21, 2018, on Phelan and Buttemere Roads in Phelan after the suspect did not pay the correct fair in the machine. The bus driver asked him to pay the difference, and the suspect became loud, vulgar, and began threatening the bus driver. The driver stood parked and called his supervisor to respond. The suspect yelled at the driver and subsequently threw him out the open door and onto the ground outside. The suspect exited the bus and punched the driver, who was still on the ground 6-8 times.

The suspect is described as a black man who is 25-35-years-old, 6’ tall, and 250 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. At the time of the attack, the suspect was wearing a gray and red Chicago Bulls beanie, black and gray hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants and black tennis shoes with white soles. The suspect said that he was homeless and authorities believe that he is left-handed due to all his punches were from his left fist.

Any information regarding the suspect should contact Detective Jeffrey Collins at 760-995-8781 reference DR#071804188.
