CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

RTA cameras caught a violent beat down on camera as a man simply rode a rapid train, but the victim just got justice.

It happened last September near the W. 65th Street station. Video shows 4 men jumping another passenger, punching and stomping on him.

RTA police arrested the men the next day, and Cuyahoga County prosecutors built a case against a father, a son, and two relatives.

Judge Deena Calabrese sentenced Manuelle Williams, J.L. Williams, Ronald Woods and Deionty Austin. Their sentences ranged from 4-7 years.

This comes as many people are calling for more RTA safety on buses and trains, and the agency is taking a series of steps to increase security.
