Two men were arrested for assault and a dozen more will have to appear in court for their roles in a massive fight inside a downtown Boston parking garage that was caught on video by passersby and uploaded to online sites.
The 14 people police said played violent roles in the brawl were identified through the videos posted online to sites like YouTube and through the garage's surveillance cameras.
Robert Tran, 27, of Randolph and Trong Huynh, 25, of Quincy, were arrested last week on multiple assault charges, state police said Monday. Twelve other people were identified and are being summonsed to Boston Municipal Court, police said. Troopers are still working to identify three more people involved in the fight.
When police responded to the Transportation Building parking garage just before 3 a.m. on Jan.27 they were met by four victims. Two men were severely beaten and injured and were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Two women also suffered minor injuries.[videoembed id=120226]
The four victims said they were attacked by a group of up to 20 people as they were trying to leave the garage.
The violent fight caught on video shows a group of men repeatedly punching another man. One man is seen bleeding from the face later in the video.
