Shopping driver left boy on bus
PHILADELPHIA — Police in Philadelphia say a school bus driver is facing charges for leaving a 7-year-old boy on a running bus while he went grocery shopping.
WPVI-TV reported that 28-year-old Jamar Henry picked up the boy Monday afternoon from a Christian school in West Philadelphia.
Henry then stopped at a ShopRite supermarket, where police say he told the child to stay on the bus while he went inside.
A passer-by noticed the child alone and called police.
While officers were talking to the child, Henry ran out of the store, telling police he had a bathroom emergency.
Police say store video doesn’t back up his claim.
