Metro Transit Police are looking for six people in connection with a Dec. 21 attack on the Red Line.
The agency said there are no warrants for the individuals referenced in the case, and listed them as persons of interest.
They are being sought in connection with the assault of a man who was attacked aboard a Red Line train between Union Station and NoMa-Gallaudet University during the evening rush.
The victim was “terribly concussed” and suffered a broken jaw, his wife told the Post. A witness said a large, rowdy group of youths boarded the train at Union Station shortly after 5 p.m. when one of them began harassing a man who was sitting down. Metro said attack stemmed from an apparent attempted robbery of the man’s bag.
An attacker began punching the man repeatedly before walking away, the witness said. Then, a second attacker punched him in the jaw. The man met his wife on the NoMa-Gallaudet station platform, was treated by paramedics and taken to a local hospital.
The man’s wife said her husband is healing daily but has not been able to return to work.
