Bus Driver Helps Arrest Riverside Robbery Suspect

A Riverside bus driver, Bob Owens, is credited with helping police catch a violent robbery suspect who boarded his bus in Corona when he recognized Erick Cunningham’s, 45, face from posters. 

Police said that on April 16, Cunningham, used a hammer or mallet to bludgeon a 52-year-old owner of a Riverside tobacco shop and then grabbed cash from the register. The victim was hospitalized in serious condition. 

On Thursday morning, Cunningham boarded Owen’s bus in Corona and took a window seat at the front of the bus, according to the Riverside Transit Agency.

Owens calmly waited, taking care not to appear nervous, for his opportunity to alert law enforcement that Cunningham was on his bus. 

Owens waited until he could quietly ask another bus driver to alert police during a stop. Minutes later, Owens made a stop on his route at the Galleria at Tyler, and officers were waiting.

Cunningham was being held on $1 million bail. He is expected to appear in court Monday to face felony charges.
