Woman stabs acquaintance on Metro platform
A domestic dispute on the Shaw-Howard Metro station platform ended in a stabbing Friday morning, and a man and woman have been charged, officials said.
Both participants received non-life threatening injuries, and were taken to separate, area hospitals.
Officers from the Metro Transit Police Department were called to the platform about 10:30 a.m. According to initial reports, the man struck the woman in the face, and she responded by stabbing him in the left forearm.
Angela Gates, a spokeswoman for Metro, said the man has been charged with simple assault, and the woman has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
