RTA: Man tosses hot liquid into faces of two bus operators

An investigation is underway after two RTA bus operators had a hot liquid tossed in their faces.

The incident Monday morning at the Cedar University Rapid Station in Cleveland. 

RTA tells 19 Action News that two drivers were standing at the bus loop around 10:30 a.m. when a young man walked up and a confrontation ensued.

During that time, RTA says the man tossed hot liquid, possibly coffee, into the faces of the two operators.

The drivers were taken to the Cleveland Clinic for treatment, which do not appear to be life-threatening.

The suspect is still on the loose.

RTA says they will not tolerate this type of behavior, and plan to prosecute the suspect to the fullest extent when he is caught.
