About 20 people attacked a homeless man on a train in Manhattan on Saturday night, according to the city police department.
It happened around 9:30 p.m. on an uptown A train near the Columbus Circle station.
Police said the 29-year-old man was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries to his face.
Two 16-year-olds are in custody for the attack and are facing possible assault charges, police said.
"Unfortunately, you know, when people make grown-up decisions, they have to pay grown-up prices and you pay for your behaviors," one woman said. "That's what needs to happen: They need to be held accountable for their decisions. End of discussion, it's very unfortunate."
