MILWAUKEE (AP) - Authorities say a 14-year-old girl was the second person stabbed during a robbery on a Milwaukee County Transit System within two days.

Police say the girl was on a bus Tuesday morning when she was approached by a man who demanded her cellphone before stabbing her. They say a witness chased the girl’s attacker and retrieved her phone, but the suspect escaped.

The girl was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.

Police believe the same suspect was involved in the first incident reported Monday night when a man followed a 21-year-old woman as she got off a bus, demanded her money, stabbed her and fled. The woman was taken to a hospital with injuries that aren’t life-threatening.

An investigation is ongoing.
