Police said at about 10:30 p.m. the female driver stopped on Commercial Drive at Napier Street in East Vancouver and offered a group of young people Halloween candy.

"She opens up the door and she asks if they want some candy, " said Const. Howard Chow, a spokesman for Vancouver police.

"They say they do. She throws it out and for some unknown reason there's a bit of an argument or some yelling at the bus driver … Two teenaged girls then grabbed the bus driver, dragged her out and start beating on her," he said.

Investigators said two teenaged girls, reported to be wearing Santa hats, repeatedly "punched her multiple times in the head."
