HADLEY – After the woman charged with slashing two passengers and the driver of a Pioneer Valley Transit Authority bus was handcuffed and read her rights, she apologized.

“I’m so sorry, I don’t know what came over me,” Brietta Brown said, according to the arrest report. “Please apologize to them for me, will they survive? I hope Allah will forgive me.”

The arrest report, written by Hadley Police Officer Thomas Chabot, also describes surveillance video from the bus, which was heading east on Route 9 when the attack occurred.

The video shows Brown sitting calmly after boarding the bus. She was seated on the passenger side of the bus behind the victims, who were sitting together. “At no point in time was there any interaction between them prior to the attack,” Chabot wrote.

Brown could be seen on the footage removing the knife from her pocket and unsheathing it. She then grabbed a female “her by the head … and made a left to right slice to the victim’s neck.”

She then attacked the male after he stood up reacting to the assault. She “made multiple slashing motions” and cut him at least once, according to Chabot’s report.

Witnesses told police “with some variance that Brown looked like she was about to say hi to the two indented victims when she grabbed each by the head and sliced at there (sic) throats.”

Police said passengers and the bus driver intervened and subdued Brown.

“In the scuffle as she was being subdued she also cut the bus drivers (sic) hand with the knife as he attempted to control her,” Chabot wrote.

The driver suffered chest pains following the incident. He and the other victims were taken to Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton.

Afterward, while Brown was in Chabot’s cruiser, “she began praying to ALLAH, (and) after arriving at the station she continued to pray and would not break her concentration to speak with any officers.”

Brown would not speak to police during the booking process or “acknowledge our presence and would not answer any of our questions, and would not stop praying.” Officers placed her in a cell until she would comply.

Her behavior became more erratic, Chabot wrote. “She began to drink toilet water, and asked multiple officers to shoot her in the head and referred to herself in the third person.”

Officers ultimately called the Amherst Fire Department to take her to Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton for a mental health evaluation.

On Thursday, Brown’s 26th birthday, she was arraigned in Eastern Hampshire District Court on two counts of attempted murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and disturbing the peace. She is scheduled to return May 9 for a dangerousness hearing.

Brown, who authorities said lives in Northampton, will also be evaluated to determine if she is competent to stand trial. That examination will be conducted at the Hampshire County Jail and House of Corrections, where she is being held without the right to bail, according to court documents.

  1. She is just be a good pious muslim following the korans commands.

    47:4 Behead and slaughter the unbelievers; take others captive
    “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then set them free, either by grace or ransom, till the war lays down its loads. So it shall be; and if Allah had willed, He would have avenged Himself upon them; but that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will not send their works astray.”
    Imams have specifically called for pulling the heads back and slicing the throats as outlined in the isis manuals. Same thing as a boy scout getting his medals.

  2. There were Christians and maybe Jews on that bus, practicing the commands of their scriptures without interference. But let a Muslim practice the commands of her scripture and people get all offended. Blatant Islamophobia!

    • It’s too bad that someone on that bus wasn’t legally carrying a concealed pistol — the muslima chould have been shot to death.

  3. This has nothing to do with Islam which, as we all know, is a religion of peace. Surely, she has a mental problem -The Boston Globe

  4. Hey Massachusetts Politicians: The blood is on your hands and all future blood, the future slaughter, rape and humiliation of non-muslims by “the religion of peace”.
    ISLAM does not integrate it conquers.
    ISLAM hates political cowards who will not protect their taxpayers.
    Political silence of the threat of islam is consent for the Islamic regime to continue the slow conquest of the USA.
    Not funny at all!

  5. the love that Islam displays to all in these heinous acts is disturbing and distressing. To think the left is in bed with and supporting these things is a travesty.
