Right This Minute: Train vandals get taste of own medicine

MELBOURNE, Australia - Three teenagers jumped out of the bushes in Melbourne and started vandalizing a train.

Passengers say the group jammed a brick under the slow moving train to stop it and pulled an air hose at the back to disable it.

The passengers started fighting back by dumping water and hurling cans at them throughout the attack.

This was a special charter trip filled with train enthusiasts celebrating the farewell tour for the last Hitachi electric train. 

A passenger told police the vandals had at least one accomplice on board phoning them with progress reports during the attack.

Police are still looking for the people involved in the incident.
