TUSTIN (CBSLA.com) — Police in Tustin have arrested a contracted bus driver of special needs passengers and accused him of sexually abusing his clientele.
Authorities have announced the arrest of 57-year-old Jon Francis Farris.
The suspect was arrested Wednesday following a month-long investigation, police said.
The driver worked for Western Transit Systems in Garden Grove.
KCAL 9’s Stacey Butler spoke to one of Farris’ shocked roommates.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” said Lee Elswick. “Yikes. It’s beyond anything I know.”
Police said he abused at least three women with the mental capacity of little children.
His roommates said Farris had the job until last month. He didn’t tell them why he stopped working.
Authorities told Butler that one of Farris’ neighbors said he would park his bus in front of his house with one of his special needs clients inside. The neighbor told police it looked like something “inappropriate” was going on and he called police a week later.
Police are asking for the public to come forward if they are aware of any additional victims.
