Police need help identifying man in bus assault

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Chula Vista police Thursday renewed their call for public help to find a man who threw a glass bottle at a fellow bus passenger, cutting his face, about three months ago.

The suspect appeared intoxicated when the attack occurred on a Metropolitan Transit System bus about 11:50 p.m. on Aug. 27, Chula Vista police Capt. Gary Wedge said. The suspect issued a gang challenge and continued to cause a disturbance after the victim responded that he did not want any problems, Wedge said.

As the bus came to a stop at Third Avenue and Naples Street, the suspect again confronted the victim and threw the bottle at his face, causing a wound that required several stitches to close, Wedge said.

Police described the suspect as Hispanic, between 20 and 25 years old, about 5-foot-9 and weighing around 170 pounds. At the time of the assault, he was wearing a black and brown plaid long-sleeved button-down shirt, dark pants and brown suede shoes.

Police asked anyone with information to call them at (619) 409-5487, or to contact Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
