A Carrier Coach bus aide has been arrested by state police and charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault in connection with an alleged attack of a 15-year-old autistic boy.

The suspect is identified as 28 year old D'Andre Robinson of Cheektowaga.

The Buffalo News reports that the incident took place last Friday, May 18, while the bus was transporting students to the Baker Victory School in Lackawanna.

The unidentified boy suffered facial injuries.
