CLEVELAND -- RTA is investigating the assault on an off-duty bus driver at 12:30 a.m. Thursday at the Windermere station.

RTA spokeswoman Mary Schaffer said the driver, Glenn Wilson, was off duty in the parking lot of the Louis Stokes Rapid Transit Station at Windermere at 14233 Euclid Ave.

Amalgamated Transit Union Local 268 President William Nix tells Channel 3 that Wilson just got off of work and told a group of kids to stop smoking. Nix said that's when Wilson was attacked.

Wilson, 54, was on the ground when officers arrived, according to the police report, and he was taken to University Hospital with minor head injuries.  He was released from the hospital on Friday.

RTA is pulling the surveillance video from the parking lot and intends to prosecute those responsible, Schaffer said.
