Teenage girl stabbed on Metrobus outside Minnesota Avenue station

WASHINGTON — A 14-year-old girl was stabbed on a Metrobus outside the Minnesota Avenue Metro station Monday evening by people she apparently knew.

Around 5:37 p.m., Metro Transit police responded a report of a stabbing on an X2 bus outside the station. The 14-year-old girl had gotten into an argument with two other girls she knew, according to Metro.

The argument escalated to a physical assault and the girl suffered lacerations. Metro did not immediately report what kind of weapon the victim was stabbed with, but said her injuries were not life-threatening. She was taken to a hospital.

The suspects, however, took off. Police are still working to locate them.
