Man arrested, woman hospitalized after BART train attack

A man has been arrested following an attack on a BART train Monday night that left a woman hospitalized, a BART spokesman said.

The man and woman were on a southbound train between Daly City and Colma at about 9:35 p.m. Monday when they “had some sort of interaction,” BART spokesman Jim Allison said, after which the man struck the woman in the head with an as-yet-undetermined object. Allison said the man then walked away to another part of the train.

BART police arrested the man after he got off the train at Colma, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The woman, who was bleeding from the head, was taken off the train in Colma to a nearby hospital for treatment of what Allison described as non-life-threatening injuries.

No other information about the suspect or victim was available late Monday night.

The train both people were on was taken out of service for collection of evidence.
