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.

Does she always have a knife handy?
If someone slapped you,it would have to be prety hard for you to stab them.
I think it was a carry on argument that started the night before at their house.She took the knife to work because she didnt trust him to leave her alone.
....Good story eh?..Should be a reporter.
NO, I couldn't do that,I have morals
