Phoenix police are searching for a man who attacked a bus driver earlier this year.

On Feb. 20 officers were called to the area of 24th Street and Thomas Road after receiving reports of a fight on a city bus.

Once they arrived, witnesses told officers that a man became upset with the bus driver and physically assaulted him, police said. The suspect attacked the bus driver a second time before getting off the bus.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is urged to call the Phoenix Police Department or Crime Stop at 602-262-6151.
