Arrests have been made by police in separate alleged felony cases that occurred recently on BART property, BART officials said today. Police arrested 24-year-old Craig Cuthbert on suspicion of stabbing two people Sunday morning at the Lafayette BART station.
Cuthbert, a transient from Salt Lake City, Utah, allegedly turned himself in to San Francisco police Wednesday afternoon. BART police said that they were able to identify Cuthbert as a suspect after someone saw a video image of him from a camera on a train.
Police are investigating whether the two adults Cuthbert allegedly stabbed had stolen items from his bag while he was sleeping on a train.
This morning at about 3 a.m. Fremont police detained a man for allegedly jaywalking and learned he had a warrant out for his arrest for a robbery on a BART train Sept. 11.
Fredachi Stone, 37, is alleged to have shown a handgun and then taken a woman’s purse on a train traveling between Hayward and South Hayward stations. Police found Stone also with the help of video from a camera on a train, according to BART officials.
