CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKYC) – Cleveland’s public transit agency says four teenage boys have been taken into custody after a bus driver was attacked with a sock that was stuffed with a brick or rocks.
A spokeswoman for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority tells the Northeast Ohio Media Group that two 17-year-old boys and two 14-year-old boys are expected to face assault charges.
The agency says a 51-year-old bus driver was attacked in the wee hours Sunday by someone who stepped onboard, began swinging the sock and repeatedly hit the woman in the head, neck and shoulders before running away.
The driver suffered bruises. She was treated at a medical center and released.
