Verifier attacked by a passenger without a ticket
At the invitation of the verifier to get off the vehicle to provide general information and regularize the position, the passenger reacted by throwing a series of punches to the face and body of the employee so much that he had to request the support of the police, who intervened by blocking the attacker, and 118, who rescued the verifier and took him to the hospital.
