LONG BEACH (CBSLA.com) — A fight on a Metro Blue Line platform in Long Beach Monday morning prompted the closure of the Fifth Street Station while an investigation was conducted.
The altercation occurred about 8 a.m., according to Ramon Montenegro of the Sheriff’s Transit Policing Division. An unidentified person was “cut with a sharp object” and hospitalized with injuries described as non-life-threatening.
