Police: Man Hijacked DART Bus, Forced Driver to Take Him to Police Station
DES MOINES, Iowa – A man who hijacked a DART bus in Des Moines Monday night had no interest in running from the police -- in fact -- he went right to them. The incident began Monday at 11:15 p.m. when police say 25-year-old Abraham Ramirez hijacked a Des Moines Area Regional Transit bus. Sgt. Paul Parizek says Ramirez got on the bus at 9th and Grand and demanded the driver take him to the shelter. After the driver told him the shelter was off the route, Ramirez threatened to bust the driver’s head open and changed his destination to the police station.
