ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities say they've arrested two men and a
16-year-old who face charges in connection with attacks on
passengers aboard a commuter train headed for Atlanta's airport.

MARTA police said Monday that 19-year-old Jarquez Scott and
20-year-old Zantavious Sanchez Scott are being held in the Fulton
County Jail.

Jail records show both men have been charged with aggravated
assault, aggravated battery and robbery by force.

It wasn't known late Monday whether the men have attorneys.

Authorities said the 16-year-old, whose name wasn't released,
was being held in a youth detention center.

Two passengers on the train, both of whom are Delta Air Lines
employees, suffered cuts to their faces during the April 16 attacks.

Police also said they've obtained arrest warrants for two more
suspects - a 14-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man.
