One of the City’s Needle-Wielding Criminals Has Been Arrested

By

A 53-year-old  man — Shelwyn Patt — was arrested yesterday afternoon for stabbing an MTA bus driver in the arm with a syringe last month. (He's not to be confused with the needle-point robber, who's still on the loose.) He was recognized by another bus driver, who immediately called the police. No motive has yet been identified.
