A Brooklyn man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for armed attack on school bus

Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah announced this in a sentence on Friday June 17, 2022.

According to the statement, the Brooklyn resident Tony Mauro was sentenced to 10 years in state prison for an armed attack on a group of workers, including school bus drivers, employed by Royal Coach Lines at the company’s Greenburgh bus depot in 2018.

“Mauro, 41, was sentenced as a Second Violent Felony Offender on June 17, 2022, to 10 years in state prison, with five years of post-release supervision,” Rocah stated.

Mauro pled guilty to Criminal Use of a Firearm in the First Degree, a violent felony.

“Gun violence in our community will have consequences,” DA Rocah said.

“No one should have to face the barrel of a gun while doing their job, let alone our transportation workers. We are grateful to all of the law enforcement who helped ensure the victims were physically unharmed.”

On November 16, 2018, at approximately 4 a.m., Mauro ordered three victims at gunpoint onto a bus that was parked at the depot.

He then fired a shot that struck the car of a fourth employee whom he had ordered out of the car. During the incident, which occurred during a blizzard, one of the victims was able to send a text for help, and Mauro fled the scene on foot as Greenburgh Police arrived.

The Greenburgh Police Department arrested Mauro following a pursuit and investigation, with assistance from the Greenburgh Towns and Villages SWAT Team and the Westchester County Department of Public Safety.


The case was before Judge Robert Neary in Westchester County Court, and was prosecuted by the Trials and Investigations Division of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.
