Two more violent assaults have been reported involving Winnipeg transit, police say.
In the first incident, on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., police went to the area of Dakota Street and Paddington Road for reports of a seemingly intoxicated woman assaulting passengers and the operator of a transit bus.
Police say she went on the bus, got verbally aggressive and started assaulting a 15-year-old girl and then the 28-year-old bus driver.
Passengers intervened and the driver was able to pull over and then officers caught up to the stopped bus at John Forsyth Road and Ashford Drive.
When police got there, the driver and passengers were waiting outside while two women were still on the bus fighting.
Through their investigation, officers learned that one of the suspects boarded the bus in the area of St. Mary’s Road and Vivian Street and became verbally abusive and aggressive with several passengers.
