DA: Man pulled gun on SEPTA bus driver who missed his stop
The District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday charged a man who allegedly pulled a gun on a SEPTA bus driver for missing his stop.
Investigators said 20-year-old Walter Thompson threatened a Route 24 bus driver with a firearm last Thursday after the driver failed to break at Thompson’s desired drop-off point. Thompson then allegedly jumped off the bus and fled.
Thompson was arrested Tuesday night and charged with assault, harassment, terroristic threats and weapons offenses.
He was arraigned on Wednesday and is currently jailed in lieu of $150,000 bail. Thompson is next due in court for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 14.
