Mob Attack: BART has video inside train car


OAKLAND (KRON) — KRON4 News has confirmed that BART has high-quality video inside the train car that provides clear images of the suspects. Video to be shared with neighboring law enforcement agencies.

About 40 to 60 juveniles jumped the fare gates at the Coliseum Station Saturday night and ran to the second-story platform, where they entered a Dublin-bound train car after it approached the station, said BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost.

The teens grabbed bags and cell phones from passengers and took off into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood before BART officers could respond. Two passengers were punched in the face.

“There are probably 50 kids at the front of the station,” a man described in an emergency dispatch audio.

“A group just got on at Coliseum, started beating the windows. When the train doors reopened, they off boarded and were seeing beating up another male.”

KRON4 is working on getting the footage. However, BART officials said that because the suspects are minors, they will not be releasing the videos.

The surveillance video will be shared with local law enforcement agencies.Stay with KRON4 News for updates WHAT OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON:
