May 15, 2019– Mary Greeley News – A 25-year-old woman is accused of pushing an elderly man off a Las Vegas bus. He later died. Now police have released video of the incident to find witnesses.
Cadesha Bishop, 25, was arrested on May 6 and charged with open murder on an elderly-vulnerable person in the death of a Serge Fournier, 74, whom she is accused of pushing out of a bus on March 21, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and NBC affiliate KSNV.
The bus surveillance video released by police on Tuesday shows Fournier starting to exit the bus with a large foldable cart when Bishop shoves him from behind with both her hands. Fournier flies through the bus doors and lands face-first on the sidewalk and his cart.
As Fournier passes the suspect, she then pushes him from behind forcefully. He can be seen falling out of the bus and onto the sidewalk outside, landing on top of the metal cart he was carrying.
The man, Serge Fournier, initially survived the fall, but later died from injuries.
Fellow passengers and witnesses told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Ms Bishop had been shouting profanities at other passengers before Fournier interceded and asked her to be nicer.
She then pushed him out of the bus, witnesses said. After the push, she then walked away without offering to help the senior citizen.
