Trespassing on Rail Property/Psychiatric Detention

July 14, 2014, 8:17 p.m.

Case: 1407-2299

A male entered the station and told the station agent that he wanted to jump in front of a train. He then went to the platform. Power was dropped and trains were held out of the station while officers responded. The man sat on the platform edge and then went onto the tracks, before returning to the platform. The station agent was able to convince the man to return to the concourse, where arriving officers detained him. The man was transported to the county hospital for emergency psychiatric detention. Trains were delayed for about ten minutes as a result of this incident.
