Atlanta teen mob attacks 2 on MARTA train

  • Follow Crime & courts

ATLANTA -- About two dozen teens pounced on two Delta employees on a MARTA train headed south toward the airport, according to media reports, including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

A witness told Channel 2 Action News 20 to 25 teenagers swarmed onto the train after it stopped at the Garnett station just after midnight Sunday morning.

“Once the doors opened, it was a bum-rush of people,” a witness told Channel 2. “The next thing you know, they just started beating him.”

The teens smashed one of the victims in the face with a soda can and then took his wallet, the witness said. Meanwhile, the other victim was repeatedly punched in the face. A report filed by MARTA police identified both victims as Delta employees.

Unfortunately Paul a gun does

Unfortunately Paul a gun does not carry 2 dozen bullets. How many do you think they would have got off before the punks took the gun away and shot them. I am in favor of carrying a gun but that would have not solved this situation; only made it worse.

In the AJC today....witness

In the AJC today....witness say blood was everywhere...they were intimidated....2dozen teens beat & robbed 2 flight attendants......
Many airline employees use Marta to go to work....all hours... when this happens the victims are locked in with the punks....they were shouting BFPL.....bank first-play later....that might identify a local gang known to operate out of that area.....
To the poster who said Get real.......ride the marta after 9pm a few nights.....& it will get real for you.

perhaps Delta can sue MARTA for not keeping the thugs at bay and not offering protection for it's employees.
