Teen stabbed on Metrobus

Updates to correct attribution:

A teenage male was stabbed and seriously wounded late Tuesday night on a Metrobus in Southeast Washington, authorities said.

The stabbing occurred about 10:45 p.m. in the 2200 block of Pomeroy Road SE, a stop on the W6 route. The victim was stabbed in the abdomen, said Lisa Farbstein, a Metro spokeswoman.

Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman for the D.C. police, said the victim, who is a juvenile, was seriously injured, but his life did not appear to be endangered.

After the stabbing, the bus stopped near Fort Stanton Park and several people "hustled off," Carew said. The teen then made his way to the driver and said he had been stabbed.

He was taken to George Washington University Hospital by ambulance.
