An elderly man who walks with the aid of a Cane was attacked while he was onboard a B46 bus that was northbound on Utica Avenue at Fulton Street in Brooklyn at about 9:10AM on Tuesday.
The attacker, described by witnesses as a much younger man at least six feet tall, was able to flee the bus, making his escape by possibly boarding yet another bus at the busy intersection, according to witnesses.
The victim suffered a head wound in the attack and his clothing was visibly covered with blood.
Initial reports indicated the victim was stabbed, but it remains unclear at this time what was actually used to inflict the wound.
The attacker is still on the lam and is actively being sought by Cops.
Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter 29yr old Conor McGregor was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, after launching an attack on a bus inside the parking garage of the Barclays Center on Atlantic Avenue on Thursday April 5th, 2018.
Conor was taken from the 78th Precinct in Brooklyn at about 10:23AM on Friday, just a block away from the Barclays Center, and transported to Brooklyn Central Booking where he was processed for his Arraignment. After his appearance before the Judge, Conor was able to post his bail in the amount of $50,000 before walking out to face the media with his head held high and his chin up. He then disappeared into the back of a white GMC SUV double parked in front of the Courthouse.
According to Authorities, Conor threw a hand truck through a window of the bus, causing a man inside to sustain lacerations to the face. The injured man, said to be in his thirties, was taken to Methodist Hospital for treatment. Conor is also accused of throwing a dolly through another window of the bus, causing a 24yr old man inside to sustain a cut to the eye. This man was also taken to Methodist Hospital. A 47yr old man also alleges that Conor punched him several times to the face with a closed fist, but he declined to go to a Hospital.
As a result of all this mayhem, the NYPD charged Conor with one count of Assault 3, two counts of Assault and one count of Criminal Mischief, for causing $6,400.00 in damages to the bus. Arrested along with Conor was 25yr old Cian Cowley, also from Ireland. According to Authorities, a 36yr old Equipment Manager stated that his left hand was injured and swollen, after he tried to prevent Cian from attacking the bus. The NYPD charged Cian with one count of Assault and one count of Criminal Mischief for causing $6,400.00 in damages to the bus. Cian walked out of the Courthouse right behind Conor, and joined him in the back of the GMC SUV amid a media crush. Both Conor and Cian are due back in Court at a later date.
