Teen Stabbed on Green Line Train; Service Temporarily Suspended


A teenage boy was stabbed on a train near Anacostia on Metro’s Green Line, leading to the suspension of service temporarily on Thursday.

The incident took place aboard a Branch Avenue-bound train at approximately 6 pm, according to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA).

Due to a police investigation launched into the stabbing, Metro service was suspended between Southern Avenue and Navy Yard. Shuttle bus service was made available.

Trains later single tracked between Anacostia and Navy Yard, causing delays in both directions.

The boy that was subjected to the stabbing attack has not been identified, and there are no arrests so far. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
