OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A man wanted in connection with a double stabbing aboard a BART train Friday has been arrested according to BART Police.

The suspect, 27-year-old Solomon Espinosa, was taken into custody just before 1 p.m. Tuesday by a U.S. Marshals Task Force in Oakland near 5th Ave. and E. 8th St., BART Police reported.

Police identified Solomon in surveillance images as the person who attacked two people aboard a Richmond-bound train at MacArthur Station on the evening of August 3rd.

Two male victims suffered non-life threatening injuries in the assault with one receiving a cut on his arm and the other a facial laceration. The circumstances that led up to the incident were still under investigation.

The incident followed an emotional funeral held earlier that day for 18-year-old Nia Wilson, who was fatally stabbed at the same station on July 22. Her death was one of three homicides on the BART system in a period of less than a week.
