An STM bus driver wants charges laid against two young sisters from Hochelega-Maisonneuve, after they filed a complaint against him last December, because they say he tried to attack one of them.
The sisters said they asked the bus driver if he could wait for their mother, but Dorothy Chowdhury, 23, said, instead he shut the door on her foot.
She said she kicked the door out of shock but then the driver pulled over and ran into the street to try to hit her.
“He put the brakes on the bus so fast that everyone was falling, he ran out of the bus to try and hit me in the street,” Chowdhury said.
Her 17-year-old sister threw a cappuccino on the driver to try to stop him, but she says he managed to spit on her.
The next day Chowdury filed a complaint with the STM and never heard back.
“I called a couple of times to find out what was going on, and no one called me back.”
She says she also tried to file a complaint with Montreal police who suggested she wait until the STM inquiry was complete because it could be long and costly.
On February 10th, she found out the bus driver had made a complaint to police against them both.
“I think they used my complaint to find me, I made a complaint first and then it came against me, how come?”
The STM says all complaints are confidential.
Chowdhury has now filed a complaint with Montreal Police against the bus driver.
