MARTA investigates elderly man pushed off train

Posted: Updated:

Police are on the hunt for a man who they say roughed up an elderly passenger on a MARTA train.

The incident occurred on Saturday at the East Lake Station around 4:00 p.m.

Authorities say what's most disturbing is that no one called police. A passenger uploaded video of the fight on YouTube. According to the source, the elderly man got on MARTA and immediately started talking disrespectfully to those around him.

A man dressed in a black shirt began arguing with the elderly man and eventually grabbed his walker and forced the man off of the train. Another passenger claims the older man fell after being forced off.

FOX 5 spoke with MARTA riders and got reactions to the video. 

Investigators have issued a lookout for a possible suspect and anyone with information is asked to call 404-848-4911.
