Have you heard the one about the guy who stabbed the bus driver in the shoulder with a syringe? There’s no punch line -- this shit happened Monday morning!
Just before 11AM, the 30-year-old MTA employee was driving his route on Prospect Park Southwest when a man wielding a hypodermic syringe stabbed him in the shoulder. The driver was treated and released from that place with the good AC and salad bar Methodist Hospital.
The composite drawing, which portrays a 5-foot-9 man between the ages of 45 and 50, can only be described as the love child of Juan Valdez and the Marlboro Man.
But seriously, who just stabs someone in the shoulder with a hypodermic needle? A disgruntled Rite Aid flu shot-giver? A smack-sharing junkie? A new superhero called "The Park Slope Vaccinator?"
I write in jest, but seriously -- don’t stab your friends, your neighbors, strangers or the MTA. If you see something…fucking say something; and don’t take the bus. Crazies take the bus.
