CityNews | posted Thursday, Mar 31st, 2016

Two separate incidents turned the “better way” into a scary ride for TTC passengers on Wednesday.

In a tweet, police said one rider set another person’s hair on fire during the afternoon rush hour. The alleged incident happened in The Queensway and Southport Street area around 4 p.m.

“Passenger’s hair set on fire by another […] with a lighter,” police tweeted.

According to the Toronto Sun, the woman responsible fled the scene and eluded police.

No serious injuries were reported.

Around the same time, police said a woman riding a TTC bus in the Finch Avenue and Alness Street area was sprayed in the face with perfume.

Police were called to the scene, but in a tweet said the woman did not want to press charges.
