The Attack Comes One Day After A Bus Driver Was Executed By A Passenger
Police are searching for at least one suspect (pictured below) who is believed to have been involved in a viscious beating targeting a mass transit authority police officer in Baltimore earlier this afternoon.
Onlookers, who did nothing to render aid to the injured officer, can be heard laughing about how the assailant was a “boxer.”

The attack on the transit officer comes just a day after the execution of a beloved city bus driver, Marcus Parks, who served residents of the city for 20 years before being killed by one of his passengers.
The victim of this beating has not had his name disclosed, but we do know he was transferred to a local hospital, his injuries are not life threatening, and he is believed to be in good condition. The videos are below and we will update this report as new information arrives.
