The assault was captured in May in a surveillance video of the SIM10 bus at the intersection of Fingerboard Road and Narrows Road South in the Concord section.
The suspect hit the driver after being told he couldn’t carry an electric scooter.
The MTA does not allow scooters or bicycles on most buses.
The suspect wore a unique helmet.
The driver was not seriously injured.
MTA spokesman Michael Cortez made the following statement:
“There is no excuse for assaulting a bus operator. Thanks to the NYPD for tracking down the perpetrators and the citizens helping to get the justice of the transportation workers who were trying to do his job. I hope. “
