Man on stolen bicycle attacks an MBTA bus.

 On November 15, 2021 at approximately 8:45PM Transit Police officers assigned to the North District took a report of Malicious Destruction of MBTA Property. After the officers conducted an on scene investigation they determined the following: An MBTA bus made a right turn onto North Shore Road in Revere while travelling on North Shore Road a bicyclist was riding parallel to the bus. Suddenly the bicyclist cut in front of the bus forcing the operator to stop abruptly.  The bicyclist, an unknown male, got off the bike went to the buses' front door and proceeded to kick the windows. Both windows of the buses front doors shattered and the bus had to be taken out of service. The bicyclist, left the bicycle behind, and fled the scene. 

The unknown male offender, left the bicycle on scene for good reason: The bicycle was stolen. The true owner of the bicycle was reunited with his property and Transit Police detectives will attempt to identity the offending male party.
