BART Police Search for Suspect in 'Unprovoked' Attacks

BART police are seeking the public's help in locating a suspect in a pair of attacks on BART trains the past few days.

In a press conference Monday, BART officials said the suspect, whose name is being withheld until booking is complete, is a resident of Berkeley and has a criminal history. The male suspect, who is being described as being in his late 30s, roughly 6 feet tall, wearing a grey shirt, tan shorts and black shoes, hit another man in the head with a metal object, leaving him with a laceration.

The suspect also punched and kicked the victim before fleeing the train and running out of the station. Both attacks were unprovoked.

On August 5, 2017, at approximately 1930 hours, the same suspect was on a San Francisco Bound train approaching Embarcadero Station.

At this point, police said, a brief fight ensued and other passengers stepped in to break it up and stop the suspect from taking the suitcase.

Anyone with more information regarding the attacks are asked to call BART Police at 510-464-7020. He approached a man on the train and allegedly struck him twice in the face with a closed fist, then fled, according to police. According to the victim and witnesses, the attack was unprovoked.

The victim suffered minor facial injuries during the fracas and was treated at the scene.
