A man was stabbed in the face and body following an altercation at a Pasadena Gold Line station early Thursday morning. The stabbing at the Metro Gold Line Fillmore Station was reported just after 1:10 a.m., and a suspect is currently in custody.

Ramon Montenegro, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Transit Service Bureau, told LAist that the suspect was arrested at the Highland Park Metro station. According to Montenegro, after receiving the call Sheriff's deputies responded to both the scene of the crime as well as outlying stations. They met and stopped the train at the Highland Park station, where they found a man matching the description given to them by deputies at the scene. The suspect was later positively identified by witnesses, according to Montenegro.

The victim is out of surgery and remains in critical but stable condition as of 5:30 a.m. this morning, according to Montenegro. The Gold Line Fillmore Station was briefly closed during the investigation, but has since reopened.
