A video of a Minneapolis bus driver being attacked has gone viral after being posted on Facebook by one of the passengers named Cyncere Davis, who was on the bus at the time of the incident.

It is hard to watch as the defenseless driver starts to get punched and kicked after a man enters the bus and starts swinging and kicking at the bus driver.

The driver of the Route 5 Bus was attacked at the stop on Emerson and 15th in the near North neighborhood on Tuesday. What is so hard for me to believe and comprehend is the fact that not one person on that bus came to the defense of this driver. Not only that, you here people laughing and hollering in the back round while he is being attacked.

This video really shows just how vulnerable drivers can be as they have absolutely no protection from any riders that get out of hand and try to assault them. It is not clear what motivated the man to attack the driver, but Metro Transit said it was unprovoked.

The driver was taken to Hennepin County Medical center for cuts and bruises and has since been released. Metro Transit Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect.  For more information on this story CLICK HERE   WARNING! VIDEO BELOW CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE!
