A teenager was stabbed in the stomach during a fight outside of a Metrorail station Sunday morning, Metro police said.

Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said the stabbing occurred between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. at the Minnesota Avenue station before it opened for the day.

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.
