DUNSMUIR, Calif. — A 66-year-old man reportedly from Kennewick is in custody on suspicion of stabbing two people aboard a Greyhound bus in far Northern California.
Charles Burnett Ripley — a passenger on the bus — had been talking to himself when he lunged across the aisle without warning early Tuesday morning and began stabbing a 23-year-old woman, said Siskiyou County sheriff’s officials.
The bus was traveling south on Interstate 5 and had just passed Dunsmuir.
Some men on the bus held Ripley until the California Highway Patrol arrived. Sheriff’s officials say he stabbed a 22-year-old man while while attempts were made to hold him.
The victims’ conditions were not immediately known.
