Two bus riders in the Bronx laid a beatdown on a 67-year-old woman after she screamed and threatened them with her walking cane, cops said on Wednesday.
The two women, one who was pushing a stroller with her infant child inside, got on the Bx1 bus at Grand Concourse and 161st Street at about 1 p.m. on Monday, according to cops and video of the wild brawl.
After the stroller bumped into the 67-year-old woman, she launched into a heated exchange with the two other younger women.
Another rider recorded the incident with his cellphone.
The ladies shouted obscenities back and forth at each other, with one telling the 67-year-old woman to “shut the f—k up,” the video shows.
“You don’t tell me to shut the f—k up. You’re not my mother!” the 67-year-old woman, who was standing in front of an open bus door, shouts back.
The older lady then challenges one of the other women to a fight — “come the f—k on then,” she yells and slams her walking stick onto the floor of the bus, the video shows.
Both women then confront the 67-year-old, one from the sidewalk in front of the open door and the other from inside the bus.
“It ain’t going to be both of ya’ll,” the older woman shouts repeatedly as she stands in a defensive position and swings her walking cane.
The women then pounce on the 67-year-old. One of them grabs the walking cane and hits her in the face with it, the video shows.
The second woman grabs her hair and lands several punches to her face before letting her go.
The women then retrieved their stroller and walked away from the scene.
Police responded, but the elderly woman refused medical attention.
Cops were looking for the attackers on Wednesday night.
