Police ID suspect in Bronx school bus attack

Police are searching for a man who they say attacked an 11-year-old Bronx boy on a school bus last Friday.

As News 12 The Bronx has reported, the suspect, identified by police as 26-year-old Joshua Jones, allegedly punched Jameel Grant in the face after climbing onto the bus using the emergency exit.

Grant says the man was looking for another teen who was cursing out the window. The suspect mistakenly singled out the 11-year-old and then hit him several times in the face before running away.

Police say Jones is 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 165 lbs. with black hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
