Guardian Angels to Protect Metro Riders

In response to NBC Washington's report about the beating of a man at a Metro station by a gang of teenagers, the Guardian Angels have said they will increase patrols on trains and buses.

The Guardian Angels said they are reacting to an increase in teen violence on public transportation in the D.C. area.

Robert Joy said he was attacked by about 15 teenagers at the Suitland Metro Station at about 6:30 p.m. Friday when he took out his phone to call police about those teens attacking another teen. Joy lost two teeth and needed stitches in his mouth.

The Guardian Angels said more uniformed and non-uniformed members will patrol Metro and will intervene and detain people for the police, The Washington Examiner reported.
