A man riding on the NM Rail Runner has stabbed people on the train. Two victims were transported to UNMH with serious injuries. There were a total of 3 victims.
"A male passenger on the train started stabbing another male passenger. That altercation led to the people in that car, which was on the second floor of one of our rail cars running out of there alerting security," said NM Rail Runner spokeswoman Augusta Meyers.
The knife the suspect used in the attack on the NM Rail Runner.
One of the victims was a security guard who intervened.
"We're grateful we had a security officer on the train because and she would be okay after sustaining wounds from this individual. The officers on the railroad are trained to deal with any situation that might arise," Meyers said.
A witness from the train told us an off duty nurse was on the train and provided medical aide until rescue arrived possibly saving the lives of the victims.
