Police Seeking Six Youths in Connection to Attack on Red Line Train

Metro Transit Police released photos of six youths that they believe are connected to an attack aboard a Red Line train that left a man with a broken jaw and a concussion.

The attack happened between Union Station and the NoMa-Gallaudet University Metro station on a rush-hour Red Line train on Dec. 21. About 5:30 p.m., a group of youths attacked a 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.

Last night, Metro Transit Police released photos of six people they believe are connected to the attack.

Anyone who is able to identify the individuals pictured is asked to call Metro Transit Police Detectives at (202) 962-2121 and reference case #2015-61461.  Tips also can be sent via text message to “MyMTPD” (696873).

    Good reporting. Glad to see pictures of the possible suspects finally…someone will recognize them. Actually all MTP has to find is one and they will reveal the others.

    Man, I was an ardent supporter of the police through all the recent nonsense, but the DC cops appear happy to bend over backwards to protect criminals. They have lost my respect entirely. 3500 cops for a small city and yet criminals have no fear. Literally no fear that anything will ever happen to them. The NYPD would have this city cleaned up in no time. But of course, those cops aren’t afraid to be cops or to fight criminals (even if the criminals happen to be the same race as the mayor).

    Hope they get charged with attempted murder.
