Assailants Heard Laughing After Savage Colma BART Station Beating

Brazen attack leaves bloodied victim hospitalized. Incident was captured on video.

A group of teens brazenly attacked a man outside a crowded Colma BART station in what was described by witnesses as a savage beating, KTVU reports.

Witnesses told KTVU that attackers pulled the 23-year-old victim’s shirt over his head and repeatedly punched him in the face, perhaps with brass knuckles.

The assailants were heard laughing as they left the scene, witnesses told KTVU.

The victim was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The 7:20 p.m. incident was captured on video.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Broadmoor Police Department at (650) 755-3838.

Let's see, the station was crowded, witnesses saw & described the attack, and they all did NOTHING to help. They just stood there & watched, and updated their Facebook & Twitter accounts...."Yo, I'm at Bart, some dude getting his ass kicked. I'm gonna record it and post it on YouTube". I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

How sad, sad, sad. I can understand that a "group of teens" can be scary and obviously dangerous so one may hesitate to jump in and help, but why not call 911 or scream for help instead of videoing the attack? I hope this poor 23 year old can get past this insane attack. I hope the cowards that attacked him get what they deserve, I hope they get paid in kind - blow by blow.
