BTP officers were called to Woodside tram stop shortly before 6pm on April 25 after a group of youths armed with spades and glass bottles smashed up a busy tram. As the doors to the tram opened they rushed on board and started attacking three passengers with belts and metal poles. After being pushed off the tram they became frustrated and started throwing things at it. Four windows were smashed and the tram had to be taken out of action. Detective Inspector Ash Cooper said: "We continue to investigate this extremely serious and violent incident, and I would implore anyone who saw anything to contact the police. "We want to reassure the local community we are doing everything in our power to identify those responsible and bring them to justice, including eye witnesses and viewing CCTV from the surrounding area.
