Officers responded to the station on a report of an adult male subject who was bleeding from a possible knife wound to the hand. Four juveniles were reported as possibly being involved.

The four juveniles had boarded a train prior to the arrival of officers, but were detained by additional officers at the El Cerrito Del Norte Station. Two of the four juveniles were determined to be adults. The investigation revealed that the victim had accused the group of 4 of stealing his phone at the Richmond Station while it was plugged into an outlet charging. The group denied stealing the victim's phone, but the victim continued to harass the group and followed them on to the train. At one point, the victim became extremely agitated and followed the group as if he were going to attack them. It was then that the adult subject drew a folding knife in self-defense. The victim made a sudden movement towards the male with the knife, and the male jumped out of the way and unintentionally cut the hand of the victim.
