An argument led to a violent attack inside a bus in Bronx.

It happened on a BX29 bus near the Bruckner Expressway and Pelham Parkway back on Tuesday, January 23 at 1:00 p.m.

When the driver pulled the bus over, a man grabbed the victim by her hair, pulled her off the bus and kicked her in the head.
