(BC Transit)

Five teenagers involved in a random attack on a BC Transit Bus last week have turned themselves in after police released their photos to the media on Tuesday. 

At approximately 12:30 a.m. on August 18th, two teenagers attacked a youth at the back of a bus heading southbound on Shelbourne Street near Cedar Hill Cross Road. 

The teenagers were part of a larger group of seven. Police said the other youths from the group filmed the assault and later posted it to social media. 

Although the victim and the two facing charges were not known to each other, police believe the incident stemmed from an interaction at a bus stop about an hour and a half prior.

The victim was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

Investigators were able to identify and arrest the two teens who committed the assault and are recommending charges of assault causing bodily harm.

While none of them have been charged with any offense at this time, police say the investigation remains open and active.
