    Three men have been charged with assault after attacking a rider on a Metro bus April 5, the Seattle Times reported.

    KIRO 7 reported on Wednesday that a Seattle teen was facing assault charges over his involvement in a brutal attack on a homeless man. The incident was caught on a bus' camera.

    Shortly after midnight, a man got off a RapidRide D Line bus on 15th Ave. NW in Ballard.

    A young man can be seen following the man and soon after, he pushes the man into other people and then throws him to the ground. He is then joined by two others.

    Suddenly, the three men converge on the man, pushing and hitting him. The three appear to gang up on the man, pummeling him and throwing him to the ground.

    King County court documents state that the man was punched 27 times, some that were running kicks to the head. Supervisors at Harborview Medical Center told police the man will have long-term traumatic brain injuries.
