Police have arrested the suspect in an attack on an 11-year-old Bronx boy riding a school bus.

"He just started punching me in the face," said Jameel Grant, the victim.

His eye is still swollen and bruised and it's been nearly a week.

Joshua Jones, 26, was arrested on Saturday.

Jones is charged with reckless endangerment, assault, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing.

Police say Jones pummeled the boy after jumping on a school bus carrying the 11-year-old and other special needs kids.

Jones allegedly got on the bus through the unlocked back emergency exit at a corner near P186 in the Bronx and then jumped off the same way.
