A man was attacked on a Mississauga Transit bus in broad daylight as passengers reacted in horror.
A video posted on Twitter shows a man approaching another person on a MiWay bus. Passengers can be heard yelling “no.”
The man shouts something at the person as he cowers in his seat, covering his face. The aggressor then turns and looks around, then appears to hit the man in the head.
Passengers yell and start to stream off the bus. A few people stayed on the bus and tried to help the victim.
The incident happened on a 103 route MiWay bus at Matheson Drive on Wednesday, Nov. 23 around 3:45 p.m., according to the person who posted a video on Twitter.

He did not want to speak with officers or file a report, police say.
