Police are currently looking for a fortysomething man who allegedly attacked his bus driver yesterday morning in East Harlem. For unknown reasons the man apparently punched the driver, a 58-year-old woman, in the face before jumping off the bus and making a run for it.

The man, described as being white, 5'9" with a medium build and pepper hair, attacked his driver at 7:50 a.m. while on a northbound M15 bus. After the assault he jumped out on 1st Avenue and 102nd Street. What set off the fight is not immediately clear, we've reached out to the MTA for comment. The driver was taken to a nearby hospital for minor injuries to her face and the MTA has not . As usual, anyone with any information on the alleged perp is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477).

Meanwhile, we know the non-SBS M15 can be frustrating, but if you really must take out your aggression on a driver, crazy long signs posted all over are probably more effective than physical violence. And less likely to to get the police hunting you down.
