Toronto Woman Arrested for Assault on HSR Bus

A Toronto woman will appear in court today to answer to several criminal charges in relation to an incident that occurred yesterday evening on an HSR bus.

On Thursday, June 6, 2019, shortly after 8:00 p.m. the victim and her friends entered an HSR bus at the Go Station on Hunter Street. She sat behind a female who began causing a disturbance while consuming alcohol. The female uttered an unprovoked threat at the victim who got up from her seat to sit elsewhere. The female then spat twice on the victim. One of the victim’s friends interjected which discontinued the disturbance. The bus driver stopped the bus and the female left with a male who was in her company the entire time. Once outside the bus, the female began banging on the windows and doors until she walked away.

An HSR supervisor was contacted, attended the area and located the female. Hamilton Police was notified of the incident and met up with the supervisor who had maintained a visual of the female. She was arrested, taken into police custody and is scheduled to appear in court today to answer to several criminal charges.

The victim was not physically injured as a result of the incident.
