Two teenagers suffered serious injuries after a group of assailants stabbed them outside of a Washington, D.C., Metro station Sunday.
Officers from the Montgomery County Police Department responded to the scene at the Wheaton Metro station and found a 15-year-old and 16-year-old suffering stab wounds. The victims were attacked near the Wheaton bus station loop on Viers Mill Road in Silver Spring, Md. at roughly 3:15 p.m., reports NBC Washington.
Authorities rushed the teens to a local hospital where they are recovering from their injuries. The injuries are described as serious but non-life threatening and police said the victims are conscious and talking to investigators.
Detectives are currently looking for eyewitnesses and checking surveillance footage to learn more about the attack. The victims walked to the west entrance of the station after the stabbing to find help. The attack happened right underneath two transit security cameras, which police are currently not releasing, according to FOX5.
Authorities said they have identified one of the suspects but are still looking for two more. It is unclear if any arrests have been made or what the suspect’s descriptions are, but police are still investigating the incident. Police closed part of the Wheaton station to conduct the investigation, but rail and bus service ran unaffected.
