A man and a woman were hospitalized after they were attacked and stabbed early Tuesday morning while exiting the Downtown Berkeley BART station.
According to BART spokesperson Chris Filippi, the two victims, a 27-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman, were attacked at 12:50 a.m. while riding up the escalator leading to the street level at Shattuck Avenue and Center Street.
Filippi wrote in an email that they suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The man was transported to Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, and the woman was transported to Highland Hospital.
According to the email, the suspect fled on a bicycle. He is described as a Black male in his early to mid-20s, with a slim build and a medium complexion. The email said he was wearing a gray hoodie, gray pants with a black stripe down the leg and dark shoes.
According to the email, detectives have not reached a definitive conclusion, but early indications suggest the attack was not random.
BART police ask that anyone with information about this case call them at 510-464-7000.
