A CTA bus driver was assaulted in the Loop while inspecting his vehicle Saturday night, according to police.
Police said the bus driver, a 49-year-old man, stopped his bus when he heard a loud noise at approximately 9 p.m. in the 100 block of North Michigan Avenue to inspect his vehicle.
When looking at the vehicle, two suspects began to push and punch the driver multiple times before fleeing the scene.
The man sustained bruises to the body and face and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested shortly after the incident and placed into custody. He has been charged with aggravated battery of a transit employee.
If you live in the City of Chicago and find this behavior offensive, take the time to email your alderman. Your alderman will not be reelected without community support.
