EUGENE, Ore. - A woman hit a bus driver after he told her not to put her feet up on the seat in front of her last Thursday.

Police responded to the assault just after 7 p.m. on Oct. 4.

A woman got on the Lane Transit District bus near Barger Drive and Golden Gardens Street and took a seat near the rear of the bus, putting her feet up on the seat in front of her.

When the bus driver told her not to put her feet up, the woman reportedly became belligerent, police said.

The driver pulled the bus to the side of the road and told the woman to get off.

Before leaving the bus, the woman hit the bus driver, causing minor injuries.

Police hope the public will recognize the suspect in the surveillance photos and contact Officer Sean Kelley at 541.682.5154 x 1144.

She is described as 5-foot-7, 19 or 20 years old with a slim build and blonde shoulder-length hair.
