DATE/ TIME OF INCIDENT: May 23, 2019 10:40am



SUSPECT: Howard Brock Davis, 25 years-old, transient

VICTIM: 68-year-old bus driver for Victor Valley Transit Authority


On December 21, 2018, the suspect got on the Victor Valley Transit Bus at Phelan Road and Buttemere Road in Phelan. He did not put the correct fare in the machine and the bus driver asked him to pay the necessary amount. The suspect became loud, vulgar and threatening to the bus driver. The driver refused to drive away and called in for his supervisor to respond to the location. The suspect got into the driver’s face, continued yelling and pushed the driver out the open door and onto the ground outside. The suspect stepped outside and punched the driver in the face 6 to 8 times while the driver was still on the ground. The driver suffered serious injuries to his face and head from the assault.

As a result of a four-month long investigation by Detective J. Collins, the suspect was identified as Howard Brock Davis and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Davis, who is a sex registrant and listed as a transient out of Hesperia, was located living on the streets in San Diego.

On May 23rd Howard Brock Davis was arrested by San Diego Police Department and booked at West Valley Detention Center where he is currently being held in lieu of $100,000. bail.
