WHEATON, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say a 28-year-old Metro bus driver has been stabbed by a passenger near the Wheaton station.

Police say the man was stabbed in the abdomen early Tuesday and was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities say the driver was picking up passengers at the Silver Spring station when he was told by several patrons that a man in the back of the bus had exposed himself. As the bus approached the Wheaton station, police say the man got into a confrontation with a woman on the bus. The driver intervened and later realized he had been stabbed.

Police have identified the suspect as Victor McEachin, 52, of Silver Spring. He’s been charged with assault and marijuana possession. He was taken to the Montgomery County jail.
