PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Port Authority Police Department has arrested a man who allegedly punched a bus driver in the face.
The man boarded a Port Authority bus at Homewood Station around 8:20 p.m. on Sunday. When he went to exit near the Liberty Avenue stop, he punched the driver in the face.
Assaulting a transit worker can lead to a charge of aggravated assault and potentially be listed on someone’s criminal record as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the severity.
Police asked for help identifying the suspect. Port Authority says Richard David Hickman Jr. turned himself in after reportedly seeing himself on television.
