Bus reluctantly helps assault victim 

Metro Transit driver tried to get away from the little stop of horrors, but battered 15-year-old runs bus down

You're 15. You finish your shift at the downtown restaurant where you work, so you head to the bus stop to get a ride home. It's 11 o'clock at night. Then two guys walk up to you at the bus stop and start causing shit. They ask for your phone, and when you don't give it up one of the guys grabs you, holding you for the other one to hit with a piece of plastic pipe. A knife comes out, and you're getting stabbed in the gut. But before they can kill you, a bus finally arrives. Are you saved?
