Details

Two teenagers were battered on a Madison Metro bus following a dispute that reportedly started with Facebook messages. The two victims said they wanted no trouble, and when it was clear they were going to be attacked, one went to alert the bus driver. As this happened, one suspect put the second victim in a headlock. She was repeatedly punched in the head. The girl who had gone to talk with the driver was attacked by the second suspect. She was also punched multiple times in the head. The violence took place just after the bus pulled into the West Transfer Point. The suspects fled following the violence and the MPD has probable cause to arrest each for battery.
