Terrible news coming out of Oakland, California…
18-year-old Nia Wilson and her sister, Letifah Wilson, were attacked and stabbed while riding the train at the MacArthur BART Station on Sunday night.
Sadly, Nia was killed in the attack.
Via San Francisco Gate:
The double stabbing happened about 9:45 p.m. at MacArthur Station, which was quickly shut down for the night. The station reopened Monday morning.
Agency spokesman Jim Allison said the second victim was taken to a hospital for treatment, while the suspect — described by witnesses as a heavyset white man in his 20s or 30s with short hair — fled and remained at large Monday.
A motive in the violence was unknown.
Nia and Letifah’s father is pleading with the public to help him get justice for his baby girl.
BART Station police announced they are having a media event at 12:30p PST with images of the murder suspect.
Our media event providing an update on last night’s fatal stabbing at MacArthur Station including details and images of the murder suspect will be at 12:30pm at BPD HQ. https://t.co/NtOL7zXvvt
