— A Fayetteville woman was charged Tuesday with damaging a Cumberland County Schools bus, police said.

Natasha Dandridge, 21, of 4981 Galveston Drive, was charged with disorderly conduct, damage to property and resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer. She was released after posting a $1,300 bond.

A woman broke four windows on a school bus Tuesday morning when the bus stopped on Galveston Drive to pick up students, police said. The attack continued as the bus, which was headed to Alger B. Wilkins Elementary School, headed down Santa Fe Drive and onto Bragg Boulevard, police said.

School district spokeswoman Theresa Perry said no students were on the bus when the incident began. In a 911 call, the bus driver reported that she pulled out before any children could board because shattered glass was all over the bus.

No injuries were reported in the attack.

Police said they haven't determined a motive for the attack.
