Witnesses sought in case of man found unconscious at El Cerrito del Norte Station

The BART Police Department is seeking the public’s help to aid in their investigation of an alleged altercation at BART’s El Cerrito del Norte Station last week.

On Tuesday, June 19th, 2012 at approximately 7:06 p.m., a Station Agent found a 46-year-old African-American male unconscious and bleeding after being alerted by a customer of two males fighting in the bus zone. The customer who reported the fight left the scene before investigators arrived and there was no one else in the immediate area when the station agent arrived.

BART Police wants to know what caused this man’s injury and is asking anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that may help in the investigation to call the BART PD Investigation’s Section at (510) 464-7040, the confidential hotline at (510) 464-7011, or email Detective Jon Woffinden at Jwoffin@bart.gov.
