A look at the video shows a man kicking and beating an elderly passenger. Several passengers were at the back of the bus, huddled together on their cell phones, as the suspect beat the woman and then went for the bust driver. The bus driver was able to open the doors so everyone could get off the bus and she also disabled the battery on the bus.
