The incident occurred about 12:20 a.m. when two passengers became involved in an argument in the rear of the bus. A third passenger, who was not involved in the dispute, walked from the front of the bus and stabbed the victim several times.
The victim, a 41-year-old man, suffered non-life-threatening wounds to his head, chest and one of his thumbs. He got off the bus at Nepperhan Avenue and Elm Street and walked to St. Joseph’s Medical Center. He was treated there and then transferred to the Westchester County Medical Center, where he was admitted. He has since been released.
The assailant fled the scene.
The investigation is continuing by detectives from the General Investigations Unit.
A few other passengers were on the bus at the time of the incident but exited when the confrontation began.
