Three Suspects Arrested In Metrolink Beating Of White Man Over Michael Brown
Maybe you don’t want to pose with cheese eating grin for the camera, makes it a lot easier to identify you.
ST. LOUIS Police have arrested three suspects in an attack last week in which a MetroLink rider was beaten after one of several men asked him about the Michael Brown “situation.”
A police source confirmed the arrests Monday evening and said more information would be released soon.
A video posted to Facebook appears to show the attack March 23 on the 43-year-old man, and MetroLink released surveillance images of suspects.
Police said the victim, who is white, was punched and kicked by three black men, one of whom had made the reference to the teen killed in Ferguson by a police officer Aug. 9.
The assault took place about 8:54 p.m. as the eastbound train was nearing the Forest Park Metrolink platform, police said. The victim told police he was seated when the three men approached him from behind. More
