Posted By on Thu, Dec 27, 2007 at 10:04 PM


A man who is suspected of stabbing a MARTA bus driver with a pocket knife on Christmas Eve remains at large. The attack, which occurred around 9 p.m. at the intersection of Covington Highway and Miller Road, was provoked by an argument of unknown origin.

MARTA spokeswoman Cara Hodgson said the driver of the MARTA bus, whose name has not been released, stayed overnight in Grady Memorial Hospital and then went home on Christmas Day.

The suspect, shown at right, is described as an African-American male with brown eyes and is approximately 6 feet tall. He has a medium build, may wear a mustache or goatee, and is believed to be between 30 and 35 years old.

A MARTA spokeswoman declined to comment further because the matter is an ongoing investigation. People with any information about the incident should contact MARTA police at 404-848-4911.
