An ax-wielding man shattered the shield protecting the driver on a CTA bus Saturday, and then turned and calmly walked off the bus. He disappeared and was not found.
The man bought the ax just minutes before at Chicago Coast True Value Hardware on Western Avenue, according to a DNAinfo Chicago report. The man boarded a 49A Western bus at Lunt, wreaked his havoc and then walked away.
"He just casually walked away," said one woman who didn't want to be named. "He didn't run from the scene. ... It was pretty creepy. I have to say that."
This is very creepy indeed. I'm glad no one got hurt in what could have been a very dangerous situation.
