April 22, 1987

GOTEBORG, Sweden (AP) _ A bus driver outsmarted a would-be thief by slamming on the bus brakes, toppling the assailant and kicking him out the bus door, police said.

The assailant, a man in his 30s, was the only passenger late Sunday when he pulled a knife on the driver and demanded cash, a police official said Tuesday. After knocking the attacker off his feet and out the door, the unidentified driver drove off and alerted police.

The police official said no suspects have been arrested.
