A woman has been charged with murder after pushing a 74-year-old man off a bus.

The 25-year-old woman, Cadesha Bishop, was arrested after Las Vegas police released this video of the incident, and encouraging potential witnesses to come forward with any information they might have.

The man, Serge Fournier, initially survived the fall, but later died from injuries.

In the video, Ms Bishop can be seen speaking with Fournier after she entered the bus, and as he moved to get out of the vehicle with a metal cart.

As Fournier passes the suspect, she then appears to push 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.

Witnesses have claimed that she got off the bus and walked away without offering to help Mr Fournier.

Trevor Taylor, a neighbour of Fournier’s, told local media: “He was an excellent neighbour. Very nice, religious person.”

He added: “No matter what his age, she should not have done that. People need a little more patience than what they have these days.”
