WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) – Worcester Police are searching for a suspect accused of stabbing a bus driver in Worcester on Wednesday.
Police said emergency services were called to the scene aboard a Worcester Regional Transit Authority bus, which was parked on the side of Lincoln Street, around 2:40 p.m.
The driver was taken to a hospital with life-threatening stab wounds.
The suspect fled the scene on foot. Authorities have not released his description.
In their search, police searched a nearby mall but found it empty.
A spokesman for WRTA told 7NEWS that their buses are equipped with surveillance cameras aimed at the driver’s seat. A preliminary review of this video shows the suspect getting on the bus and approaching the driver.
WRTA riders also carry a safety shield which is said to have protected the rider from potentially even more injury when this happened.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the police.
The incident is being further investigated.
