(NECN: Justin Michaels) - Police say a male victim was beaten by six suspects around 9:00 p.m. Sunday night on a train at Boston’s Broadway T Stop on the Red Line after a verbal fight escalated.
Daily Red Line riders are talking about the assault.
Eric Hampelich said, “It's sad. It ain't like when I was a kid. When you fought one person, that was it, you shook hands and made up. Now it's all gangs."
The released by the MBTA video shows the victim on the ground, with several people kicking and punching him while he's down.
One person said, "All these people on one person. I just think it's really mean."
Police have even released photos of some of the suspects.
Hampelich said, "I've seen them around before them girls. I didn't catch a good look at the guys, and I didn't see that kid before but I've seen the girls around here."
Transit Police say two good Samaritans jumped in to help the victim. They said the victims did not know the attackers.
