WORCESTER - A suspect in the stabbing of a Worcester Regional Transit Authority bus driver near Lincoln Plaza was arrested Friday.

Dashuan Stokes-Sims, 28, of Worcester is charged with armed assault with intent to murder, mayhem and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury. He is due to be arraigned in Central District Court on Monday.

Stokes-Sims was arrested a day after police identified him as a suspect in the Wednesday afternoon attack.

The male WRTA driver suffered injuries that were not life-threatening. The motive for the attack was not immediately known at the time of the incident.

The driver sustained upper-body injuries from the attack and was released from the hospital on Thursday.

About 2:40 p.m., the bus was at Country Club Boulevard and Lincoln Street, near Denny's restaurant, when a man entered the bus and attacked the driver.

The assailant fled the bus and ran toward the plaza. An extensive search of the area followed, with city and state police looking in and around the many stores in the plaza.

WRTA officials said the assailant was not a passenger on the bus at the time of the attack. The assailant is believed to have entered the bus when it stopped, and no evidence of shouting or arguing could be heard on audio that was obtained from the bus.

Medical workers treat a WRTA driver for stab wounds Wednesday afternoon.
