Police are searching for a woman accused of pepper-spraying a Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus driver earlier this year.
The victim, a 38-year-old woman, was operating the BX1 MTA bus in front of a home along Grand Concourse on May 29 when she was injured in the seemingly random attack, police told FOX 5 New York.
The unidentified suspect reportedly walked up to the driver and — apparently unprovoked — pepper-sprayed her in the eyes before getting off the bus and running away.
The bus driver sustained burning to her eyes and was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
No one else was injured during the incident, according to the report.
Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect. She is described as a woman in her 30s, approximately 5’4″, and weighing 140 pounds with a thin build and dark complexion. She was last seen wearing all-black clothing and matching hat.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
Police say all calls are strictly confidential.
