Officials say a woman was tased during an encounter with police Wednesday morning at a busy SEPTA terminal. 

SEPTA Transit Police were called to the Frankford Transportation Center around 9:30 a.m. by a bus driver who claimed that a rider refused to leave the bus, according to SEPTA spokesperson Andrew Busch. 

During an encounter with police, Busch said a SEPTA officer tased the woman and took her into custody. The woman and a SEPTA officer were taken to Frankford Hospital for treatment, Busch said.
