Watch: Black teens caught beating up Asians in viral subway video

WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS VIOLENCE & EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

Philadelphia cops are probing a violent brawl involving teen students on a train. During the melee, one girl’s head was brutally slammed against train doors, though police said there were no serious injuries.

A group of girls on board a SEPTA train attacked two others while the train was passing through a tunnel on Wednesday. The footage was apparently shot by a bystander as the train traveled by Erie Station.

The video shows one group repeatedly yelling at and punching another group of teens until one falls over. She is repeatedly whacked with a shoe after being brutally smashed into the train door, the attack visible on video shot by another passenger. Before that, the girls also verbally abused a group of teen boys who were seated on the train.

The attackers appeared to be African Americans while the victims looked Asian or Asian American. The altercation took place at around 3:30pm local time on the Broad Street Line.

Philadelphia City Councilman David Oh called on SEPTA train police to do a better job providing security, saying “there has to be a response by the police” and SEPTA school safety officers. “[SEPTA] has a police force and we need to see them,” he said.

Local news outlets reported that police had identified four of the individuals seen in the footage, though there is no indication that anyone has yet been charged with a crime. In addition to SEPTA police, Philadelphia police, Philadelphia School Administration officials, School District Police, and Philadelphia Human Relations Commission are reportedly looking into the incident.
