NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- A video on Twitter captured riders on the A train pleading with a group of young men as they beat another passenger, Thursday night.

The incident occurred as the train headed from Brooklyn to Manhattan between the High Street to Fulton Street stations at 7:30 p.m.

According to Marge, the Twitter user that posted video, the men beating the passengers weren't interested in hurting the straphangers, and one guy that bumped an older woman, apologized.

The video shows the group of four young men surrounding the victim, punching him as other passengers began to scream after the train left High Street stop, heading towards Manhattan.

People began to beg for the violence to stop and intervened, but as they moved down the subway other passengers began screaming, hiding and pleading.

Someone pulled the emergency brake but once the conductor unlocked a door, the four assailants left the subway car, Marge said.

She added that the victim told the conductor that nothing happened, and the train continued moving again.

The Manhattan-bound A and C trains were held in the station while subway crews worked to reset the train’s brakes.

An NYPD spokesman had no information about the incident Thursday night.
