A man has been charged with stabbing a transgender girl on a Metro train.

WTOP-FM Radio reports the Metro Transit Police say Reginald Klaiber, 24, has been charged with stabbing a 15-year-old on a southbound Green Line train as it approached the Fort Totten station at around 4:30 Wednesday afternoon in the District.

Police said he stabbed her in the back after making “bias-motivated remarks about the victim’s transgender status.”

She was taken to a hospital with a stab wound that was not life-threatening. Mr. Klaiber has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon. He could face additional penalties for a hate crime.
