    Police have identified two of the victims and some of the suspects. Sources also tell NBC10 they believe some of the victims attend Benjamin Franklin High School.

    SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel says officers have increased patrols at several stations and a criminal investigation is underway.

    “The message we’re trying to get out is if you’re gonna act up on SEPTA, we’re gonna have a picture of your face and we’re sharing it with the school district and between the two of us we’re gonna address it so that no one gets hurt,” Nestel said.

    If you have any information on the incident, please call SEPTA Police.
