Bus driver attacked on the job in East Flatbush

A bus driver was attacked on the job in East Flatbush on the same day a local assemblyman announced that he will introduce a bill to make their jobs safer.

Witnesses say it happened yesterday on a B46 bus at the corner of Utica Avenue and Avenue D.

They say a young man got into an argument with the driver apparently over the fare and punched the driver several times in the face.

The driver was taken to Brooklyn Hospital with minor injuries and a suspect was taken in to custody.
