King County Sheriff's detectives working for Sound Transit Police have arrested two of five teens suspected of assaulting a man and breaking his jaw on a light rail train last week.

The assault occurred on March 20 aboard a train heading to Seattle from the airport.   The victim was repeatedly punched and kicked by the five suspects when he tried to defuse the group after they harassed another passenger on the train.

Detectives reviewed surveillance footage and arrested two boys, ages 15 and 16, the day after the incident.  

Both teens were booked into the Youth Services Center for Investigation of Felony Assault.

Detectives said they are still looking for three suspects in the case and will continue to work the case until the three are in custody.
