Thursday, August 23, 2012
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police are investigating to see if a beating on a light rail train was another so-called “knock out game” attack.
KMOX Radio (http://cbsloc.al/NKQBF1 ) reports that a 19-year-old man was beaten Sunday by four teenagers on a MetroLink train for no apparent reason. Police are reviewing surveillance footage. No arrests have been made.
The attack left the victim with a broken nose and a fractured eye socket
St. Louis has been the site of other knock out game attacks — random attacks on innocent people, often as a result of a dare. In some cases, the attacks are posted on the Internet.
