Angry passenger slaps Muni driver

A miffed woman slapped a Muni driver for not letting her off the bus Monday, police said.

The woman, who was wearing a dark jacket with green pajama-type pants, wanted to be let off at a nondesignated stop around 8:10 a.m., police said. When the driver wouldn’t open the doors, the angry woman “slapped the driver on his face,” police said.

She got what she wanted — the driver then stopped the bus and she fled in the area of San Bruno Avenue and Somerset Street, police said.

The suspect was described as a black woman in her early 20s, around 5-feet, 6-inches tall, and weighing 160 pounds, police said.
