Mug shot of Leroy Davis

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The suspect in a Rapid bus stabbing in Grand Rapids was in court Friday.

Leroy Davis’ probable cause hearing was adjourned Friday as he undergoes a competency evaluation. He faces charges of assault with intent to commit great bodily harm and being a habitual offender. That means he could be sentenced to up to life in prison if convicted. His minimum sentence would be 25 years.

Surveillance video shows Davis, 41, stand up as the bus comes to a stop, walk past the victim and stab him once in the face.

The victim, 69-year-old Pascal Rurangmirwa, was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
