Metro transit police have arrested six teenagers in connection with the stabbing and assault of another teen during a gang-related fight last month near the Addison Road station in Prince George's County.

The victim, a 15-year-old boy, was waiting at the bus shelter area on the night of May 19 after an earlier fight with members of a rival gang, officials said. He told investigators that he was attacked by six members of the rival gang, including a woman who allegedly stabbed him four times and another person who hit him in the head with a stiletto heel.

Metro officials said the fight was between two gay and lesbian gangs that operate in Maryland.

Police arrested Brandon Dodd, 18, of Silver Spring, yesterday and charged him with first-degree assault in connection with the alleged assault with the shoe, according to Metro spokeswoman Candace Smith. Carynn Gray, 19, also of Silver Spring, was arrested and charged Wednesday with attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, and intent to injure with a dangerous weapon. Police also arrested a juvenile Wednesday.

Last week, Charles Mallory, 18, of Lanham, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault. Two other juveniles were arrested last week and face assault charges.

Detectives found the suspects after interviewing the victim and witnesses and searching the suspects' MySpace pages, officials said.
