UPDATE: Sheriff’s deputies arrested an individual found hiding in the brush behind 1173 Las Juntas Way in Walnut Creek at approximately 1:28 p.m.
Police responded to the Pleasant Hill BART station Wednesday after a reported stabbing on Platform 2 of the station.
Officers from Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill are currently searching for the suspect, described as a black male, early 20s, wearing a grey shirt and believed to be carrying a duffel bag and sleeping bag.
Although initial reports were that the victim in the incident had been stabbed, that information was later corrected to reflect that a fight between the suspect and victim had taken place. The extent of the victim’s injuries were not immediately known.
The suspect fled the station and was believed to be in the area. A police search is underway (12:35 p.m.)
