Police: Man arrested for slapping, pushing girl towards oncoming bus
SCHENECTADY -- Schenectady Police have arrested the man they say slapped and choked a teen girl and then tried to throw her in front of a bus.
Investigators say 52-year-old Ulysses Wynn of Clifton Park was driving erratically down The Plaza in front of Schenectady High School around 8 a.m. Tuesday morning when a group of students he sped by yelled at him to slow down.
Police say Wynn stopped his car, walked up to one of the girls that had shouted, asked her if she had said something and then slapped her across the face. Wynn then allegedly grabbed the girl, believed to be in the 10th or 11th grade, by the throat and pushed her toward an oncoming bus.
Another student ran to help the victim who was still being assaulted by Wynn, said police.
Wynn fled the scene in his car but was picked up by New York State Police a short time later.
He's been charged with one count of reckless endangerment and two counts of harassment.
He's being held by police until his arraignment.
The girl and the other student who came to her rescue are not being identified. Neither were seriously hurt in the assault.
