A stone attack on a Transport Board bus has left two women injured.
According to police, around 7:20 p.m. on Tuesday, a stone was thrown at the Sugar Hill, St Joseph-bound bus as it travelled along John Beckles Drive, The City, shattering the third right window.
A 27-year-old woman from Jackmans, St Michael, received a puncture to the right shoulder along with other cuts on the right side of her body from the flying glass.
The other injured woman was a senior citizen. She was reportedly a standing passenger and fell forward, striking her head when the bus came to a sudden stop because of the incident.
The 65-year-old complained of pains in her neck and shoulders.
Both women were treated for their injuries. They declined to be identified.
An eyewitness told the DAILY NATION the bus was full at the time, and people fled from it after the driver stopped on hearing the noise.
The Transport Board has so far not commented on the matter, while police said they were investigating the incident. (SP)
