Milwaukee Police are asking for help in identifying a woman wanted for stabbing a Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver. They say it happened on May 15th at around 3:30 p.m. near 76th and Appleton.

Police describe the suspect as an African American female, 5’4-5’5, slim build, in her early 30’s. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, black pants and a white head scarf.

She reportedly refused to pay the bus fare and when confronted by the driver she became both verbally and physically abusive and then stabbed him. MCTS says the bus driver suffered minor injuries to his arm.
