Suspected Syringe Stabber Banned from Buses

A Brooklyn judge ruled earlier this week that Shelwyn Patt cannot ride the city's buses without a chaperone.


The suspect accused of using a syringe to stab a B68 bus driver in Windsor Terrace in September has been forbidden from stepping foot on city buses without an escort, the New York Post reports

The suspect, 53-year-old Shelwyn Patt, was arrested on Saturday on yet another bus in Kensington after the driver recognized him from a police sketch and subtly alerted officers in a nearby patrol car. 

According to the Post, Patt will still be allowed to take the subway.

Before he is sentenced he has to be found guilty by a court -- where he is currently being prosecuted for attempted murder and assault.

i'm sure he can find another nutcase to escort him. maybe the resident glue sniffers? glad he'll still be riding the subway though. i guess it will keep us all on point. stay sharp people! don't let this prick get under your skin.
