Police have announced a reward for information leading to an arrest in a stabbing at a school bus yard.

It happened in Darby at the yard that houses buses for the William Penn School District on Wednesday.

Authorities tell Action News that 45-year-old supervisor Robert Dix was stabbed in the chest while inspecting damage to one of the buses.

"Upon reaching the bus, he was struck in the back of the head, and then stabbed," Chief Robert Smythe of the Darby Borough Police said.

Dix survived and has been released after being treated at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for his injuries.

The Federal Police Chief said that there were dozens of potential witnesses among the assembled employees at the scene.

Police are now offering a $4,000 reward of information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons involved in the attack.

Anyone with information should contact Darby Borough Police.
