SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Police are searching for two people responsible for the violent assault and robbery of a man waiting at a Barrio Logan trolley station in April.

Surveillance video showed a man and woman walking onto the MTS Trolley platform at 1910 Harbor Drive between 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on April 18. A 19-year-old man was sitting on a bench looking at his cell phone when the two appear to begin casing him, San Diego Crime Stoppers said.

Without any provocation, the male suspect approached the man and punched the man in the face. The suspect then grabbed the man and dragged him to the ground while the female suspect grabs the man's backpack from the bench.
