Protesters in Washington, D.C. attacked a bus Saturday evening carrying four Sylvan Hills students and their advisor.
 
According to student Scarlett Averett, a women’s rights group was blocking the street the student group needed to travel to get back to their hotel.  When the bus approached, protesters hit and threw objects at the bus. 
 
By the time the bus was able to get through the group, demonstrators had cracked the windshield.
 
It’s important to note this incident took place around 5:30 p.m. — many hours after the organized Women’s March on Washington.
 
Roughly 50 other students from other states were on the bus as part of a WorldStrides education tour group.
 
No students were injured in the incident.
