Police said the incident occurred on March 21.

According to Las Vegas Now, 25-year-old Cadesha Bishop was arrested for pushing the man as he was attempting to get off the bus following a verbal argument.

In the video, a suspect is seen pushing Serge Fournier with both hands down the front steps of the bus.

She's facing a charge of open murder on an elderly-vulnerable person.

The victim refused medical treatment at the time and died from his injuries on April 23.
