(Update 2/13/20 8:30 pm) The suspect in the Tuesday evening assault aboard a Daly City-bound train near Lake Merritt Station in Oakland has been taken into custody.  The suspect was taken into custody by the California Highway Patrol Thursday evening.


BART Police are releasing images of a man wanted for an assault that took place at 6:09 pm on Tuesday February 11, on board a Daly City bound train near the Lake Merritt station.

Surveillance footage shows the suspect boarded the train at Coliseum and began casually speaking with a female that was already on board. The victim then boarded the train at Fruitvale and began talking to both the male and female.  The suspect then punched the male in the face and the two got into a fight. The suspect hit the victim with a chain and then off-boarded at Lake Merritt station. Nothing was stolen. 

The victim was transported to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries and has since been released. 

Anyone with information about the pictured suspect is asked to call BART Police at 510-464-7040 or anonymously at 510-464-7011.
