HAYWARD, California (AP) — A man died after being stabbed with his own knife on a BART train while trying to stop the attacker from stealing the shoes of a sleeping passenger, authorities said Wednesday.
During the confrontation Tuesday in the San Francisco Bay Area, the victim pulled a knife that was wrestled away by the attacker and used to stab him several times, Bay Area Rapid Transit officials said in a statement.
Officers boarded the train and found Oliver Williams, 49, of Oakland bleeding. He died at the scene.
Jermaine Jeremiah Brim of Sacramento was arrested near the Hayward station after the 39-year-old tried to steal a van at a car dealership, authorities said.
