DC man arrested in connection with stabbing on Green Line Metro train

A D.C. man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing on a Metro Train in Navy Yard on Sunday, Metro Transit Police said.

Police said the man was taken into custody with the assistance of Arlington County Police Monday morning without incident. He will be charged with assault with intent to kill.

The man is accused of stabbing a woman on board a Green Line Train at the Navy Yard Metro Station just before 6 p.m. Sunday.

Officials said she is being treated for critical injuries.

WMATA officers said the Half Street entrance to the metro station was closed while police were on the scene, and trains were single tracking between Navy Yard and Anacostia.

Trains began running normally, and the station reopened within an hour of closing.
