The hijacker was detained after the incident, which began in the Little Rock suburb of Jacksonville and ended in Cabot, Jacksonville police Capt. Kenny Boyd said.

No one — including the 11 students of Pinewood Elementary School in Jacksonville — was injured, Boyd said.

The incident began with the man allegedly trying to take a woman’s car in Jacksonville, Boyd said. The bus had stopped in nearby, and the man abandoned his attempt on the car and boarded the bus, according to Boyd.
