A San Rafael man was arrested today on suspicion of assaulting a bus driver outside the Marin County Division of Social Services building. Domenic Ogilvie, 26, allegedly assaulted the 37-year-old male driver with a sharp metal object and a wooden pole, Marin County sheriff’s Sgt. Craig Scardina said. The bus driver suffered cuts to his head, neck and hands during the 8:45 a.m. assault outside 120 N. Redwood Drive in San Rafael, Scardina said.
The driver was taken to a hospital, and his injuries do not appear to be life-threatening, the sergeant said. Several passengers on the bus detained Ogilvie, who was booked into Marin County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon, Scardina said. Heather Ravani, director of the Division of Social Services, said the shuttle bus, from MV Transportation of Santa Rosa, carries riders to various locations in the county including the Social Services building and Marin Civic Center.
An MV Transportation spokeswoman said she could not release information about the bus driver because of the sheriff’s investigation. Ravani said security guards at the county building also responded to the assault. The Division of Social Services offers services including employment and training assistance and help with food stamps and health care.
