A video of a profanity-laced brawl that ends in nudity was recorded on a MARTA train this week and is making the rounds on social media.
In the video, two transgender women are arguing with two men after the men started taking pictures of the women and harassing them, the women told Channel 2 Action News.
The argument turned physical when one of the men threw a kick. An all-out brawl ensued among the four as other passengers on the train moved to sides of the car to make room for a fight that lasted nearly two minutes.
MARTA spokesman Lyle Harris, said officers are investigating the incident and asks for the public’s help in identifying the involved parties.
“MARTA will not tolerate this type of behavior on our transit system,” Harris said in an emailed statement Friday. “Our police department has launched an investigation to identify those who were involved and we ask anyone with information about this incident to contact us.”
MARTA Police can be reached at 404-848-4911. MARTA’s phone app, See & Say, can also be used to report incidents to the agency.
See & Say offers riders a quick and discreet method for reporting suspicious activity directly to MARTA Police. Riders can send pictures, text messages and locations of suspicious persons and/or activities.
