Juvenile assaulted twice on DASH Bus, videos of incidents uploaded to Instagram

A male juvenile was assaulted twice on a DASH bus in December, according to Alexandria Police.

On Dec. 7, the victim reported to police that he was assaulted by an individual and then by a mob. It is not clear where the bus was when the victim was assaulted.

The victim told police that he was assaulted by a male on a DASH bus and that the same suspect stole his bookbag. A few minutes later, he was assaulted by multiple males who also robbed him of his phone.

Videos of the incident were later uploaded to a private Instagram account with an Alexandria City High School logo as its profile picture.

This is the second known instance of fights and other violent behavior involving Alexandria students being uploaded to Instagram. Last year, a bunch of student fights were recorded at George Washington Middle School and put on the platform.

No arrests have been made and the incident remains under investigation, according to police.
