Jeff Quinton alerted me this morning to another reported beating on a Baltimore bus involving an alleged racially motivated attack on white passengers by a group of young black riders. I waited to see if more evidence would develop today before posting. Copycat incidents are unfortunately a concern. Well, WBAL reported on the incident last night–and follows up with surveillance video today showing the alleged attackers. It took city officials three days to release photos of the suspect:

“We were saying the whole time to the driver, ‘You need to help us, call the police,'” [Patrick] Green told 11 News reporter Kerry Cavanaugh. “He said, ‘I can’t. I’ll get in trouble.'”

Roth said the driver closed the door and drove away, even though the attack continued once they got off the bus.

“We could’ve been left on the side of the road, dead,” [Robert] Rothe said.

MTA officials said the driver of the bus is currently not operating a vehicle while the incident is being investigated.

MTA officials said they’re not currently classifying the incident as a hate crime. They said they’re simply calling it a common assault.

Green and Rothe said they’re mad it took MTA officials three days to release photos of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call MTA police at 410-454-7720.

The victims say the driver refused to help. None of the other passengers helped, either, according to the victims. The investigation continues.

Meanwhile, the first assault case involving Sarah Kreager and her boyfriend moves forward. Prosecutors are mulling charging some of the teens as adults.

A decision is expected by Christmas.

Charm City has lost its charm.

Stay off the buses.
