Woman attacked on BART train, another robbed less than 2 hours later


A woman is in the hospital after being attacked on a BART train between Daly City and Colma. 

It happened around 9:35 p.m. Monday. 

A BART spokesman says a man hit her in the head with an unknown object. 

He was later arrested in Colma. 

The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries. 

No details on what caused the attack have been released.

The investigation is ongoing.

Less than two hours later, a strong-armed robbery was reported at the BART station in Orinda just after 11 p.m. 

No injuries were reported and the robbery suspect was later arrested and booked into Martinez jail.

Police are still looking for a man who stabbed another man at the Fruitvale BART station on Friday. 

Cell phone video sent to KRON4 shows what unfolded in Oakland. 

In the video, you can see two men get into a fight while on the train. Once the train stops, the fight spills out onto the platform. 

A man was stabbed and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

The suspect ran away from the scene. He is described as about 30 to 35-years-old, 5’6 to 5’8 tall with a slender build, wearing a green jacket and blue jeans.
