The bus driver, 21-year-old Set Beltzasar told police that at around 8:00 p.m. he was driving his bus on Egbert Quilter street when he slowed down. At that time, two mask men armed with a firearm quickly made their way on to the bus.
One of the men hit the driver in the face with the pistol causing injuries to his lips. The other robber then hit the driver to the back of the head with the gun causing a cut wound.
A struggle ensued between the driver and two men began when the conductor, 17-year-old Hernan Serrano, intervened but the robbers took $200 cash from him.
The robbers then made a clean get away. The driver was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for treatment.
