A 15-year-old Metro passenger suffered a minor stab wound on a Green Line train Wednesday afternoon, and the alleged assailant was arrested shortly afterward in the Fort Totten station in Northeast Washington, the Washington Post reports.


Metro Transit Police said that the assailant may face stiffer penalties for a bias-motivated attack, since the victim is transgender and the attacker reportedly made comments about her gender identity immediately prior to the stabbing.
