Police announce 2 arrests in St. Louis train attack
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police have announced two arrests in the attack of a light rail passenger in St. Louis after he was asked about what he thought of the "Mike Brown situation."
Authorities said a third person believed to have been involved in the attack is in custody and cooperating with police.
A MetroLink spokeswoman said Monday that incidents like the recent assault are rare.
Officers released details last week after a passenger who wasn't involved posted a video of the attack on social media.
The 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.
Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old, was fatally shot by a white Ferguson police officer in August.
