BALTIMORE — Police have arrested a man suspected of assaulting an on-duty Maryland Transit Administration police officer, leaving the officer unconscious near a subway station in Baltimore.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the officer was taken to a hospital after Friday’s attack to be treated for injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.
MTA spokeswoman Veronica Battisti said police arrested a suspect, 32-year-old Shaka Admed Sekuo Kamara Jr., in the assault at the Upton Metro Station.
The assault occurred day after an on-duty MTA bus driver, 51-year-old Marcus Parks, was fatally shot in Baltimore.
