Suspect Arrested In Fatal Stabbing At Oakland's BART Station

Suspect Arrested In Fatal Stabbing At Oakland's BART Station

"The senseless and violent stabbing of two young women on a BART train platform last night has shaken our community", Schaaf said.

Joining Allums at a news conference at BART police headquarters, BART Police Chief Carlos Rojas said there's no indication at this time that the fatal stabbing of Wilson at the MacArthur station at about 9:36 p.m. on Sunday was racially motivated, even though Wilson was black and Cowell, is white.

A Monday night vigil held at the MacArthur BART station later swelled into a crowd of about a thousand that marched downtown, police said.

Rojas said, "In my close to 30 years of experience, it was probably one of the most vicious attacks Ihave seen". Her boyfriend drowned in a lake two years ago according to Ebony Monroe, a cousin of the sisters.

Police say Cowell killed Nia Wilson with a knife and wounded her sister at an Oakland station on Sunday night. Cowell was spotted aboard another BART train miles away from the station where the stabbing took place, the statement said.

"She needs her justice ... she was just an innocent kid, and she didn't deserve this".

The man said there was no yelling or any noise before the attack itself, which police are calling "random". Rojas said he had not yet been charged.

"We're very glad that less than 24 hours, we were able to get this suspect into custody", Rojas said. "We all mourn in this moment and we will all work together to bring justice for Nia, her sister and their family". Cowell is white, while his victims are black; authorities have not ruled that race was a factor in the attack.

It was not the greatest comeback in golf after all. "Even though he's won 14, you have to learn how to get back". I wouldn't say we're anxious about him, but he's one of those guys that's always in with a shot".

She added that Wilson had a job interview scheduled for Monday. "We want to see justice".

Letifah Wilson said that she, Nia and a third sister had been returning from a family outing Sunday when they were "blindsided by a maniac".

"I never imagined myself going through nothing like this", Mohammed said.

A man who witnessed the attack told them the suspect came out of nowhere and slit Nia's throat while she was sitting down in the train and that he stabbed her sister as she tried to stop him, she said. Monroe said. "And he did this for no reason". According to her family she had just graduated from Oakland High School, and wanted to be a "lawyer or do something in criminal justice".

Detectives initiated an investigation which included a review of station and train video, which revealed that there had been a physical attack in which an unidentified suspect hit the victim with a closed fist to the side of the head.

"She [was] just yelling my name, 'Tifah, Tifah, Tifah.' And I said, "I got you baby, I got you, '" Wilson told ABC 7".

On Friday, Gerald Bisbee, 51, was found dead in his home from an infection related to an injury in a Wednesday altercation at a Pleasant Hill BART station, reported KRON. At that time, the victim suffered a minor bloody lip and small cut to the back of his knee.
