Where’s the Video? BART Dispatcher on Mob Attack: ‘We’ve Been Searching Cameras For All These Incidents, So Far UTL’
A mob of 40-60 suspects, who BART described as ‘juveniles’ attacked and robbed multiple riders on a train at the transit system’s Oakland Coliseum station on Saturday evening at 9:30.
BART says they are unable to share the video of the attack because they claim all the suspects are minors.
When asked, twice, if all the cameras were working on the train and at the Coliseum station, or if some cameras were decoy cameras, BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost failed to respond.
A BART dispatcher, immediately after the crimes occurred, said “we’ve been searching cameras for all these incidents, so far UTL (unable to locate).”
At least seven robberies were committed during the crime spree. After the robberies, the suspects immediately fled on foot out of the station.
