TINTON FALLS, N.J. (AP) - A bus driver who allegedly left a special needs man alone on a bus for more than two hours last week has been suspended without pay.

The man apparently was not harmed during the incident. But further details have not been disclosed because the matter remains under investigation.

The Asbury Park Press (https://on.app.com/1pqA8qp) reports the 52-year-old man took the Monmouth County SCAT bus from his group home in Tinton Falls to the Arc of Monmouth County’s work center in Long Branch.

The bus was due to bring him back to the group home in the afternoon, but staffers there contacted police when the bus failed to arrive.

The man was found around 6:30 p.m. alone inside the bus.
