Metro Transit Police have released surveillance images of four persons of interest sought in connection with a Metrobus stabbing Tuesday morning in Anacostia.
Police responded to Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and W Street in Southeast D.C. at around 2:20 a.m. Tuesday for a report of an altercation aboard the 93-route Metrobus. Officers found an adult female with stab wounds and another adult female with blunt force injuries to her head and back.
Both women were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say the suspects are believed to have fled northbound on MLK Avenue.
Metro Transit Police detectives believe the suspects boarded the bus in the area of 18th and Columbia Road, NW in Adams Morgan. Once the bus arrived at 8th and G Streets, SE, two female passengers became involved in a verbal argument with one of the suspects. The argument escalated into a physical altercation between the suspects and the two female passengers.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Metro Transit Police at (202) 962-2121.
