A suspect is in custody for a stabbing aboard a Sunnyvale light rail train this afternoon that sent the victim to a hospital, transportation and public safety officials said. The stabbing was reported at about 3:15 p.m. on a train traveling along Tasman Drive, police Capt. David Pitts said. The victim was taken to a Stanford Hospital with multiple stab wounds, but authorities have not yet released the severity of the injuries.

The train, on its way from Mountain View to Winchester, held at the Reamwood station and the approximately 30 passengers aboard had to get off and transfer to a different train, VTA spokeswoman Colleen Valles said. Since the stabbing happened on board the train, the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation.
