LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Authorities on Sunday were still searching for a suspect accused of fatally stabbing an L.A. Metro employee Friday in downtown Los Angeles.
The unnamed suspect, described as a possibly white or Hispanic female between the ages of 25-30, became involved in a verbal dispute on the MTA Red Line train which escalated on Friday.
According to police, the woman at some point allegedly armed herself and stabbed the victim to death at the downtown rail station.
The woman was last seen leaving the Red Line train at 7th and Metro, and was pushing a distinctive green bicycle.
The victim reportedly signaled for help and was checked out by paramedics at the scene before being taken to a hospital where he died.
The victim has not yet been identified but in an email sent to L.A. Metro employees, the agency’s chief executive said the man worked there for more than 18 years. It is unclear if he was on the job at the time of the attack.
Anyone who spots the suspect is urged to call LAPD Detective Lenchuk or Detective at 213-486-8700, and to not approach the suspect. Police said she is to be considered armed and dangerous.
