KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- An ATA bus driver is recovering at home after being stabbed and assaulted by some unruly riders at 31st and Askew around 9:15 on July 13th. Now the police are looking for both of the pictured suspects.

The driver asked the suspects to vacate the bus after cursing and refusing to pay their fare. They in turn punched and stabbed the 52-year-old man multiple times.

In 2012 there were two assaults on bus drivers where the suspects were captured.
