Police are also searching for a man who allegedly assaulted two off-shift transit drivers early Saturday morning.

Police were called to the 600 block of Brandon Avenue around 5 A.M.

Upon arrival, they found a 57-year-old man who suffered a minor injury.

Officers believe the suspect approached a 54-year-old transit driver who was sitting in his parked vehicle and shattered the driver-side window.

The driver waved down a passing transit bus for help. A passenger on that bus, an off-duty transit worker, went to help and he was assaulted.

Neither man required attention.  The suspect fled before police arrived.

The investigation is ongoing.
