Jamaur Raybon, 27, got onto the bus and started hitting the driver in the head with a brick, Cleveland police said.

The victim was taken to University Hospitals and needed several stitches to his head. He's been an employee of RTA for nearly 20 years and it's unclear if he will return to work.

Raybon pleaded guilty to felonious assault. On Wednesday, he was sentenced to two years behind bars and a lifetime ban from RTA.

In a statement following the sentencing, the Greater Cleveland RTA thanked transit police, Cleveland police and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office.

"RTA surveillance video played a key role in helping our Transit Police identify and quickly capture the criminal.  RTA surveillance cameras on that bus recorded the entire incident. Our detectives arrested the perpetrator, he was charged, indicted, found guilty and now he has to face some very serious consequences," a spokeswoman said in the statement.
