Man on St. Louis train attacked after being asked about Mike Brown
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police were searching for three men Friday evening after a light rail passenger in St. Louis was attacked.
Officers released details Friday after a passenger who wasn't involved posted video of the attack on social media.
The 43-year-old victim told authorities that one of the men asked to use his cellphone. When he refused, the man asked what he thought about the Brown "situation," then punched and kicked him.
The two other men struck the victim. All three men got off the MetroLink train Monday.
The victim declined medical treatment.
Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old, was fatally shot by Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson police officer in August.
