A teenager was stabbed in the stomach during a fight outside of a Metrorail station Sunday morning, Metro police said.
Mr. Stessel said a 19-year-old man and an unknown male started arguing, which turned into a physical altercation. The 19-year-old man was slashed in the lower torso with something like a razor or box cutter, Mr. Stessel said.
“It wasn’t a deep stab wound,” he added.
The teenager called police and was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
The Metro station opened about an hour later than normal while Metro police investigated the scene.
The stabbing comes about two weeks after a 17-year-old boy was fatally stabbed in the chest during a fight at the Woodley Park Metro station.
