The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority is looking for a Good Samaritan who sprang into action to rescue a bus driver being attacked by a passenger.

The attack happened around 12:30 early Saturday morning when the female bus driver pulled off to the side of the road to call for help after the passenger started to become confrontational.

Surveillance video shows the driver calling for help when the man grabs her from behind, grabbing at her neck and face.

As she is screaming for help, another passenger jumps into action and starts beating the attacker with his cane, eventually breaking the cane on the attackers back.
