Man knifes bus driver for loud TV

Shanghai, July 08: In a bizarre incident, a man stabbed a bus driver in the Chinese city after demanding his fare back as the TV was too loud, police said.

The incident took place when the bus reached its terminus in Shanghai’s Xuhui District.

The 41-year-old suspect, Lin, asked for his money as he said the TV was too loud during the trip, Shanghai Daily reported Thursday.

He then whipped out a knife and stabbed the driver who declined his request.

The driver, Xu Yuanlin, stumbled to a room. “I’ll never forget the horrible scene. Xu struggled all the way, his clothes soaking with blood,” said a colleague.

The assailant ran off, but was caught by police.
