Portland Police say 34-year-old Michael Olivo was arrested Friday morning after vandalizing a bus and assaulting several people.
Olivo reportedly started slashing seats after getting on the bus at Washington Square. The driver, Ivan Bissell started taking pictures of him with his cell phone. So Olivo snatched away the phone and decked Bissell in the face and took off. Another bus rider got off and chased after him. He got the phone back but also took a punch for his troubles.
Olivo was eventually cornered in Southwest Portland at Garden Home and Southwest 74th.
