An MTA bus driver took his lone rider to a secluded spot and sexually assaulted her, cops said Sunday.
The 57-year-old victim told police that she boarded the BX26 bus at Jerome Avenue and Bedford Park in the Bronx a little before 3:30 p.m., authorities said.
“She says the driver drove the bus to a secluded location, turned off the bus and sat down next to her and started to touch her,” a police spokesman said. “It’s pretty outrageous if it did happen.”
Police sources said the driver also bear-hugged her and that she pushed him away. The driver also provided her with his name, the sources said.
The woman told police she went to Montefiore Hospital to be examined after the incident, the sources said.
The police spokesman said cops are looking at video and GPS data from the bus.
The MTA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
