Two Brothers Led Before a Prosecutor After Beating Up an Athens Station Master

ATHENS – Two brothers who were arrested on Friday for severely beating an Athens metro station master, 53, on Wednesday after he asked them to wear their masks, are being led before a prosecutor on Saturday.

Along with them is a security guard who was arrested for allegedly helping them hide to avoid arrest.

The two young men, 15 and 17, from the Peristeri neighborhood of Athens followed the station master off the train and attacked him on the platform, punching and kicking him in the head, as station cameras recorded the event. The STASY employee, 53, was hospitalized and later recognized the arrested youths, who are also being accused of refusing to be fingerprinted.

After switching trains, the two got off at Monastiraki where they were picked up by their mother. She had informed a security guard, a family friend, who helped them hide and told them how to avoid arrest and what to do if arrested. He was in turn arrested when he went to their house to ask how they are.

A psychologist paid a visit to the two youths, who have a clean record, during their detention.

A prosecutor will decide whether they are to be prosecuted for a crime, in which case they will have to appear before an investigating magistrate.
