A video capturing an elderly couple being viciously bullied by an unidentified thug on a New York City bus is going viral on the web. In the cellphone video, an unidentified man is filmed giving the couple a vulgar tongue-lashing and hovering over them in a menacing manner. At one point, the thug gets in the face of the elderly woman and curses at her.
When the elderly man accompanying the woman stands up to his younger opponent, the thug punched him. At this point, the passengers could no longer stand idly by and watch the abuse. Many of the riders sprung to action to defend the elderly couple, pummeling and knocking the man down. The elderly man is even captured on video getting in a few licks of his own, as riders try to restrain the menacing stranger.
The vigilante bus attack turns into a fracas as the person recording the action is overheard stating, “This is crazy!” The video abruptly ends when the passengers remove the man from the bus.
