A Madison Metro driver was punched in the face by a teenager after asking the teen to show him an ID card, according to police.
Police said they were called to the 2000 of Aberg Avenue Saturday at 8:19 p.m.

The teen fled.
He’s described as black, 15 to 18 years old, 5-feet 5-inches to 5-feet 8-inches tall, weighing 150 to 200 pounds, with a stocky build and wearing a white hoodie and dark colored pants.
