By Joe Holden and Tim Jimenez

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — SEPTA police are looking to speak to eight people in connection with a brawl that happened last week inside the Race-Vine subway station.

Officials with SEPTA say the incident started as a snowball fight on the street that escalated into the Race-Vine station of the Broad Street subway on March 16, just after 3:30 p.m.

The video was taken Thursday by a mom from South Philadelphia who declined to be interviewed for this story.

She said in a post that her daughter was pulled into the melee after trying to help one of the victims. The woman said her daughter was kicked in the head.
“That’s why I carry my mase. It is a constant reminder. It’s so much. Even on the bus. I see so much school fights on the bus it’s ridiculous.”

Police say there were three victims which suffered minor injuries. Investigators say it’s too early to label any of those pictured a suspect in the assault case.

If you have any information that could help police, please call 215-580-8111.

Officers say they want to talk to them and find out what happened.
