Oakland Park Woman Accused Of Punching Kids On School Bus

FT. LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – An Oakland Park woman accused of storming onto a school bus and hitting a couple of middle school students made her first appearance before a Broward judge on Thursday.

“It says you punched two of the people on the bus, both in the face, there were lacerations to one of them on the face,” Circuit Judge John Hurley said as he read off the arrest report for 23-year old Cynthia Haynes.

The trouble began Wednesday when Haynes 11-year old sister got into a fight at a school bus stop with another student of William Dandy Middle School. The upset girl ran home and told family members what had happened.

Police said the Haynes, her little sister and three other family members tracked down the bus and stopped it. That’s when Haynes allegedly stormed onto it and began hitting two of the students, ages 11 and 14 years old.

Broward Sheriff’s deputies arrested Haynes, her sister and the other three adults.

Haynes has been charged with two counts of burglary with assault, two counts of cruelty to children with great harm and one count of interfering with the educational process.
