Police have charged a man for assaulting a Halifax Transit driver in Halifax last night.
At approximately 9:45 p.m. police responded to a report of an assault in progress in the 1800 block of Barrington Street. A passenger on a Halifax Transit bus started to yell at the driver of the bus when it stopped at the Barrington Street Terminal. The passenger assaulted the driver and then left the area on foot. The Halifax Transit driver was not physically injured.
A short time later, a Halifax Transit Supervisor spotted the suspect nearby and officers arrested the man without incident.
A 51-year-old man is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court at a later date to face one count of assault.
