On Wednesday, July 30 a 15-year-old transgender teenager was stabbed on a Green Line Metro train.
Metro Transit Police have arrested 24-year-old Reginald Anthony Klaiber of Greenbelt, Md., for assault with a deadly weapon. Police say he stabbed the victim in the back aboard a train that was approaching the Fort Totten station. The charges might also include penalties related to a hate crime.
