Light Rail Security Guard Hospitalized After Beating


A security guard working on a Regional Transit light rail train remained hospitalized on Friday after he was attacked by three young men earlier this week, police said.

Authorities said Robert Root, 68, was seriously beaten at about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Early Friday, Casanova Williamson, 19, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and robbery in connection with the attack. Police said they are still searching for two other alleged attackers.

Officials said Root approached a group of young men who were being loud and profane on the train. He asked them to be quiet.

The men persisted in being loud. Police said Root approached the men again, only to be attacked and beaten.

Police said the attackers jumped off the train at the Alkali Flat station. The train continued to the 13th Street station, where it was met by police and an ambulance.

Something has to be done about the situation on the RT trains. There has been instances where I felt really unsafe because of people like that. The sad thing is that it happens everyday. There are elderly people, children and certain people on the lightrail are loud and have no respect for the rest of the riders around them. Instead of me getting stabbed for saying "excuse me, can you keep it down" I'd just keep to myself until I get to my designated stop. Police and RT officials have to do something about that problem.
