Police released 911 tapes in connection with an attack on a CTA bus on January 21 in which four teenagers were arrested.

911 Caller: Oh my God! They, they got on the bus and started beating up people trying to rob everybody on the bus!
Operator: Ok, that was at Central Park and St. Lawrence?
911 Caller: Yeah. And everybody, most of the people got off and ran, but still!

Two 17-year-olds are charged with battery for attacking the driver of that bus and one of those teens also faces a felony robbery charge.

Police say two 13-year olds disabled the 71st Street bus by engaging a shutoff switch. They're accused of hitting the driver on the head.
