The only bus I can think of that stops at Custer and Monroe has to be a school bus. So does this mean that a child got slapped and no ones sees it. I realize its only a police blotter but it is poorly written and doesn't provide any details. Also it looks like the south end of town on Custer is still not safe to venture into.
