The attack happened about 5:30 p.m. as the train was between the station. According to witness accounts, a group of youth attacked the man on the train after he refused to give them his bag. The youth were able to evade police at the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro station and Metro police are currently investigating to track down the suspects.

According to another passenger who spoke to the Washington Post, the youth punched the man for about 30 seconds before he passed out. The victim’s wife said he received a concussion and a broken jaw in the attack.

    A group of youths is media code. We’re not fooled anymore, pretty sure I have a good idea of the ethnicity of these “youths”.

    The PD should just look for them at home, since I’m sure they went back and studied to maintain their 4.0 GPAs en route college and wonderful careers as upstanding, productive members of society.
