Man Stabbed on Metrolink Train in Acton

One man stabbed another during a fight aboard a Metrolink train late Monday afternoon in Acton, inflicting wounds described as superficial.

The stabbing was reported about 6:25 p.m. aboard Lancaster-bound Train 219, which was between the Via Princessa and Vincent Grade/Acton stations on the Antelope Valley line, according to Metrolink spokesman Scott Johnson.

On-board security personnel disarmed the suspected stabber and held him until the train reached the Vincent Grade/Acton Station, where sheriff's deputies arrived and took him into custody, Johnson said.

The injured man, who suffered what the sheriff's department described as superficial stab wounds, was taken to a hospital, Johnson said.

The train was carrying about 150 passengers. It was delayed about 45 minutes before resuming service to Lancaster, Johnson said.
