There's no real build-up to this vicious kick to a random woman, aside from this teen's friend daring him to do it.

A disturbing video of a local teenager kicking a woman in the head earlier this week is circulating online, and has the attention of authorities. 

In the short clip, two boys are seen standing near a woman on a Green Line light rail platform in St. Paul. "You won't," says a third, repeatedly, filming the scene and apparently daring one youth to do something. 

As one teen moves away from the unsuspecting woman, the other steps toward her and delivers a jump-kick to her head -- to the obvious delight of the one holding the camera.

Metro Transit tells the Star Tribune the assault occurred after midnight early Monday morning, and that they have "significant" leads about the identity of the woman, though they've yet to make contact with her. 

Spokesman Howie Padilla says Met Transit wants to "help [the victim] in any way that we can," and that they hope to "present a case to the Ramsey County Attorney's Office for consideration of criminal charges" once the teens involved are identified. 

UPDATE: The youths in the video -- two 15-year-old, another 14 -- have been arrested, the Strib reports, and their case has been turned over to prosecutors.
