View Comments

PASADENA (AP) — A man, who was stabbed after a fight broke out on a light rail train passing through Pasadena on Friday night, is listed in critical but stable condition.

The Los Angeles Times reports the 33-year-old male victim, whose name was not given, underwent surgery at a local hospital for his injuries.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker says 36-year-old Jose Paul Vasquez Flores was taken into custody Friday on suspicion of stabbing his fellow passenger.

Nearly a hundred passengers were aboard the train when the two began throwing punches on a northbound Metro Gold Line train around 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Flores is being held on $1 million bail for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon. Parker says a bloody knife was found in his pocket.
