Suspect tells police she stabbed woman on bus for being Asian Wednesday in Bloomington, Indiana

Billie R. Davis, 56, of Bloomington, Indiana is suspected of stabbing an 18-year-old exiting a bus. She told police she stabbed the woman because she is Asian, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Wednesday, at around 4:43 p.m., Davis was a passenger on Bloomington Transit Bus 1777, when she stabbed an 18-year-old woman exiting the bus using a folding knife. The attack resulted in multiple puncture wounds to the victim’s head. The victim complained of immediate pain, and required immediate medical treatment at the Bloomington Hospital, according to the PC.

Davis told police, “It would be one less person to blow up our country.” And that she had the intent to kill the victim.

åpolice officers located her.

The PC says, “A review of bus video surveillance shows that (name withheld by the Bloomingtonian) and Billie Davis were not together and had no prior confrontations or negative interactions. The video shows Davis removing and unfolding the knife immediately prior to (victim’s name) exiting the bus. Billie appears to turn for a better position while clutching the knife. Davis then stabs and/or attempts to stab (victim) in on top of her head approximately seven times. Davis then folds the knife, puts it back in her pocket, and returns to her seat position on the bus. Davis doesn’t appear to acknowledge (victim) after stabbing her or have any other contact. Davis then exits the bus and was later located, arrested by Bloomington Police Officers.”

Davis was remanded to the Monroe County Jail for attempted murder, level 1 felony; aggravated battery, level 3 felony; battery by means of a deadly weapon, a level 5 felony.
