ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- A video posted to social media shows a woman assaulting a female victim aboard a MetroLink train. 

No police report was filed, but Metro officials say the altercation happened May 1 near the Forest Park-DeBaliviere station. 

One woman holds onto the hair of another woman and repeatedly punches her. The assault happened for about 90 seconds before others jumped in to stop the fight.

Metro officials say they have an undercover program they flood with officers for problematic areas. An additional number of officers are riding trains and evaluating its effectiveness.

MetroLink spends $11 million on security every year.
