Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputies said this past Saturday, four juveniles assaulted a 55-year-old man on a Pierce County Transit bus traveling northbound on Pacific Avenue South in Spanaway.

Deputies say the suspects kicked and punched the victim several times, and as they got off the bus at Pacific Avenue South and Tule Lake Road South in Parkland, one of them pointed a gun at the victim.

The Sheriff’s Office said surveillance video showed the suspects boarded the bus at the Spanaway Walmart at 5:07 p.m.

If you recognize the suspects or have information about this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
