Two Refuse To Pay Fare, Assault Bus Driver


Two young men, who refused to pay the fare on the MTA bus they attempted to board at Beach 116 Street on Sunday, got belligerent when the driver told them to get off and began to beat him instead. Police declined to identify the two, beyond saying that they are 19 and 20 years old. An EMT official at the scene and some locals who saw the attack pulled the young men off the driver and held them for police.
