DUNSMUIR, Calif. Sheriff's deputies say they've arrested a man from Kennewick, Washington, after officers say he attacked two passengers aboard a Greyhound bus.
Siskiyou County Sheriff's deputies say Charles Burnett Ripley, 66, had been talking to himself when he lunged across the aisle without warning early Tuesday morning and began stabbing a 23-year-old woman.
Some men on the bus held Ripley until the California Highway Patrol arrived. Deputies say Ripley stabbed a 22-year-old man while he was being held.
Deputies say the bus was traveling south on Interstate 5 and had just passed Dunsmuir.
We're trying to find out the victims' conditions.
Deputies say Ripley is being held without bail on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.
Ripley's neighbors in Kennewick were shocked to hear of his arrest.
"He's a quiet guy, elderly man. He minds his own business, respectful. Never caused any problems around here. So, much as I know he's a good neighbor," said one man who wished to remain anonymous.
