A stabbing has occurred on a Metro Green Line train in Willowbrook. The suspect then fled the scene on the train.

According to the Transit Services Bureau with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, two Latino men were riding an eastbound Green Line train when a fight erupted.

When the train stopped at Avalon Station, the fight spilled out onto the platform and one man was stabbed — at which point the second man hopped back on the train.

As of 7 p.m. Friday, the suspect was still at large.

The victim was taken to a Los Angeles-area hospital, but his condition is not known. Neither man's identity has been released.
