News

Video circulating online shows two passengers kicking and shoving a young man off a Muni train in San Francisco, allegedly over loud music. 

The video was first posted to Twitter by journalist Anna Sterling on Thursday. She wrote, “Whoa these two men just tried to throw this kid off the muni train because he was playing music too loudly.”

In the video, the two men are violently pulling and pushing the man out the doors of the train. 

Sterling claims the men were upset over the man playing loud music. 

She later explained that a witness shared the footage with her. 

According to the San Francisco Police Department, the incident happened Thursday around 8:45 p.m. on a light rail train near Judah St. and 34th. Avenue. 

After receiving several calls regarding the incident, officers responded to the scene where they located two men involved in the assault. 

Statement from SFPD here:

During our investigation both subjects admitted to being involved in a mutual physical altercation, but neither party chose to press charges.  A third male subject seen in the cell phone video was not located and did not provide us a statement.  

We are continuing to investigate the incident, and have requested surveillance video from SFMTA, which may show what occurred prior to the encounter seen in the cell phone videos.    

This is an open investigation.  Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.  You may remain anonymous.
