Police have arrested a 20-year-old man on charges of stabbing another man after a fight on a SEPTA train this week.
James Hayes, of the 7000 block of Andrews Avenue in the city's West Oak Lane section, was going south on the Broad Street Line shortly after 10:30 a.m. Tuesday when he got into an argument with another passenger, authorities said. The dispute escalated, police said, and Hayes stabbed the other man in the stomach.
The 21-year-old victim was taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in stable condition.
Hayes was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault and other offenses. - Allison Steele
