This person allegedly stabbed a Coney Island-bound B68 bus driver in the shoulder from behind at about 11:00 this morning for no known reason, apparently while exiting the bus at Greenwood Avenue and Prospect Park West. The driver, Mark Anthony Salandy, age 30, was transported to Methodist Hospital. The weapon was first reported to be a syringe, but later reports declared it "a sharp object."

In case it was a syringe, and in case it was infected with HIV or AIDS, Mr. Salandy has to, for the next six months, take medication and have his blood tested.

The alleged perpetrator escaped. He is a white male, 45 to 50 years old, and approximately 5'9" in height.

Assaulting a bus driver is a felony. The police would like to receive any information that anyone has. Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. Or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577. A third option is to visit
