WELLSTON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A MetroLink rider was beaten after a group of men entered the Wellston station and yelled ‘someone is going to eat dirt’ on Tuesday night, according to witnesses.
The incident allegedly started in the parking lot of the station as the suspects followed the victim into the train and then kicked and punched him before he was pulled off the train and onto the platform. The victim was eventually able to run away from his attackers.
It is unclear whether the victim knew the suspects. Metro officials would not let News 4 see the footage of the attack.
No arrests have been made from this incident.
