An unidentified woman is in police custody this morning after allegedly stabbing a man inside the city's 24th Street BART station, forcing the station to close.

Details are sketchy, but BART officials say that police were called to the station at about 4:30 a.m. after the woman reportedly stabbed the man, who is also not being identified. Trains continued passing through the station, but no passengers were allowed off while police investigated the crime.

BART spokesman Jim Allison told media outlets that passengers were not allowed to enter the station until about 5:30 a.m.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital; Allison did not know the man's condition.

As far we know, the trains are moving again and BART is back on track.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
