A teenager was stabbed in the bus waiting area of the Brookland Metro stop in Northeast Washington, and a suspect is in custody, authorities said.

Metro officials said a 17-year-old boy was arrested for the attack Tuesday that wounded a 15-year-old boy. Authorities said the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.

It comes amid a spate of violent crimes in — or near — Metro stations.

In one case, a 24-year-old man was stabbed to death on July 4 aboard a Metro train as it pulled into the NoMa-Gallaudet U Street stop on Florida Avenue in Northeast Washington.

A man has been arrested and charged in that homicide.
