T bus driver beaten by large group of teens in Dorchester

WBZ reports on the attack early Saturday on a Route 16 bus at Columbia Road and Geneva Avenue. Transit Police report:

The bus operator informed officers after he came to a stop to drop off and pick up a passenger he was unable to continue due to several teen aged males standing in front of his bus preventing him from pulling out. Suddenly and without provocation the suspects set upon the operator punching him in the head, neck and facial area. At one point during the assault they attempted to pull the operator through the window. The suspects fled the area in various directions. The operator suffered multiple abrasions about his face.

Minor Injuries?

Fifteen or twenty hoods beat the driver and try to drag him out the window of the bus and the police report he suffered minor injuries? What do they consider major?
