BC Transit driver assaulted


Another BC Transit bus driver has been assaulted....this one in the North Okanagan.

A 59 year old man is in hospital with non-life threatening injuries following an assault at the Vernon bus transit station this morning. 

The driver exited his bus to inform a man that he wasn't allowed to smoke near the building.

While approaching the suspect, he was grabbed and physically assaulted.

The man then spat on a woman who attempted to intervene in the assault.

A 24 year-old was arrested without incident.
