LAS VEGAS – The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has released video showing an incident in which a woman pushed an elderly man off a bus, resulting in injuries that led to his death.
Cadesha Bishop, 25, was arrested May 3 and is charged with open murder on an elderly-vulnerable person, officials said.
The incident occurred on March 21 when the victim, identified as Serge Fournier, 74, encountered Bishop as he was exiting the bus with his walker.
Witnesses told police that Bishop, who was with her young son, had been swearing at people on the bus when Fournier told her to "be nicer to passengers." Bishop then pushed Fournier forcefully with both hands, causing him to fall and hit his head on the concrete sidewalk below.
Investigators said Bishop left the scene with her child and did not offer assistance to the victim of her attack.
Police released surveillance video of the encounter on Sunday.

Fournier went to the hospital suffering from multiple injuries after the attack, officials said. He died a month later on April 23. The Clark County coroner determined he died from blunt force trauma complications connected to the push.
Fournier was described as an "excellent neighbor" and a "very nice, religious person." He leaves behind a wife who is disabled, according to KSNV.
