Commuters waited for a light rail train at Target Field station in downtown Minneapolis in November.

Three juveniles have been arrested and charged in connection with two recent violent assaults on Twin Cities light-rail trains.

Metro Transit police used surveillance video to track down the 16- and 17-year-old boys who are accused of beating one man and stealing a cellphone from another passenger the night of Dec. 4 on the Green Line in St. Paul. The suspects also are believed to have assaulted a Transportation Security Administration agent on the Blue Line in Minneapolis on Nov. 25, said Howie Padilla, a transit agency spokesman.
