Man Stabbed With ‘Cleaver-Style Knife’ On San Francisco Train

Daily Report NEWS USA

A man was stabbed with a cleaver-style knife on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train in San Francisco. The incident took place on an Antioch-bound Yellow line train and resulted in the arrest of Charles Johnson, a 21-year-old man of San Francisco, at a nearby train station.

The victim was simply running away from Johnson when he was brutally attacked, according to a statement from police. After police say Johnson robbed the victim of his backpack, he was arrested and charged with two crimes and a probation violation at West Oakland Station without incident despite attempting to flee the scene.

Fortunately, the victim survived the attack and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Mission Local reported that a journalist who witnessed the crime described the victim as in “seemingly good spirits” as he was taken away on a gurney.

The journalist described the weapon as “a rectangular butcher cleaver” and said Johnson was “pacing up and down” the train car before the attack. Johnson’s alleged attack caused the crowd to panic, fleeing and crowding the opposite end of the train.

“I jumped out of the way once and landed partially on a woman who was sitting,” the journalist told the outlet. “I was just trying to get away.”

In light of this recent attack and other similar incidents, the BART Police Department is making every effort to increase its presence and visibility in the system. By deploying more sworn officers on trains, BPD hopes to deter potential criminals and ensure the safety of passengers.
