If you’ve ever doubted that we live in dangerous times, the following video should change your mind. It captured the moment an elderly man violently attacked an 80-year-old woman on a bus for no apparent reason.
The attack, captured by surveillance video on a bus near Seattle earlier this month, showed the woman sitting in her seat when the man walked over to her and kicked her in the face. He then proceeds to choke her and drag her to floor.
The bus driver, also a woman, pulled the bus over and managed to pull the man off the victim. The man then attacked the bus driver and started choking her.
While other passengers on the bus called 911, the man returned to his first victim and began assaulting her again.
The bus driver opened the doors, allowing other passengers to escape, and called for help herself.
The man shoved his first victim off the bus, and then he began shouting at the bus driver to drive away. The driver managed to slip out the door before he could grab her, but not before she disengaged the battery so the man could not drive the bus anywhere.
Watch the video below but beware, it is graphic.
Unfortunately, attacks like these happen far more often than they should.
In another incident in Hawaii last month, a man brutally attacked a 55-year-old woman in a parking garage. He punched her so hard, she fell to the ground. He got into a car with another male suspect then got back out of the car, walked up to the woman, dragged her on the pavement and took her phone.
The two men drove away and authorities were still looking for the suspects, according to KTVT. Police are asking anyone with information regarding this attack to please call (808) 955-8300.
These savage attacks serve as warning to women everywhere because, sadly, there are always creeps looking to prey upon those who seem defenseless or weak. It pays to be alert at all times and be prepared if someone attacks.
