Tamrat Hermon (31, Hayward) was placed under arrest for robbery and battery after hitting a patron and then taking the victim’s cell phone, which was later recovered.
My fiance', daughter and close friend, all took bart over the last 2 years. They've seen some things, but no one ever did anything to any of them on bart or at any of the stations.
I carry pepper spray with me at all times on bart.
I avoid BART like the plague, but if I absolutely have to take it, I do not get on board "empty-handed" --- you-know-what-I-mean!
