A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that could help lead to the arrest of a suspect who punched a SEPTA bus driver on New Year’s Eve. A man refused to pay fare after boarding the Route 113 bus at Pembroke and Oak Avenues in East Lansdowne around 10:30 p.m., and then argued with the bus operator, according to SEPTA. The suspect punched her twice in the face before fleeing and was last seen on Oak Avenue. In 2019, there were 46 physical assaults on bus operators, including the Dec. 31 incident — an increase from 13 in 2018, and 29 in 2017.
