The bus operator was the one who called the police at 2:25 PM to report the event, telling the police that he saw the suspect and two acquaintances flee the scene on McAllister Street. The suspect was a black teen male, and they were ‘’persons of interest.’’
The SID opened an investigation and realized that the victims and suspect boarded the McAllister and Laguna Streets bus. Also, the police asked for the help of the citizens to report if someone recognizes the suspect.
