SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities say a second suspect has been arrested after last month’s attack on a San Francisco Bay Area train that was swarmed by dozens of teens who robbed and beat passengers.

The Bay Area Regional Transit agency announced the arrest Monday. Officials identified the suspect as a male minor and did not release a name or age.

BART said in a statement that Oakland police arrested the teen Friday during a foiled robbery and realized he was wanted in the train attack.

Police say 40 to 60 teens jumped the fare gate at the Coliseum Station the night of April 22 and swarmed through at least two train cars, grabbing bags and phones and then fleeing before police arrived.

BART says it has identified other suspects and expects more arrests.
