A 27-year-old man suspected of stabbing two women in the throat, killing one of them, at a public transit station in Oakland has been charged with murder.

Police on Monday identified John Lee Cowell, 27, who is homeless, as a suspect in the attack, KNTV reported.

On Wednesday, a 51-year-old man was assaulted at the Pleasant Hill Station in Walnut Creek.

BART Police Chief Carlos Rojas called it "one of the most vicious attacks I've ever seen".

BART officials said according to video from the train and station, the suspect hit his victim on the side of the head with a closed fist.

'I get here, I see all the police and ambulance and I run up the platform, and I see my youngest daughter laying up under a tarp, dead, you know?'

Ebony Monroe, a cousin of the victims, said she was among several relatives who went to the train station Sunday night after hearing about the attack.

Cowell had been released from prison in May following a two-year sentence for second-degree robbery and was on parole at the time of the crime, KRON4 reported.

The fatal stabbing was the third Bart-related death in the last five days.

A neighbor Carol Kincaid of Concord, told the Times that she had known Cowell since he was a baby and said he was "always in trouble". "Every parent who saw the father of Nia Wilson grieve for his daughter is heartbroken by this horrific act", Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf said in a statement Monday.

According to SFGate, Malika Harris and Nia Wilson boarded the train Sunday night (July 22) at the MacArthur Station, and at 9:45PM the attack occurred.

Officers then arrested him at the El Cerrito Plaza BART station, police said. "This bystander was violently attacked because of a lie spread by blogger @BrokeAssStuart", AMERICAN SHOWvinist said on Twitter.

Letifah Wilson, 26, said that she, Nia and a third sister had been returning from a family outing when they were "blindsided by a maniac".

"We gotta talk about Black girls, and Black women, and Black babies", Brooks said. Her 18-year-old sister Nia Wilson passed away at the scene.

He says police are looking for the suspect fled the station. I appreciate the commitment of these establishments to prohibit such activity in their businesses and then made a decision to hold a "Pro Oakland Movement" event this evening to support organizations that fight bigotry and discrimination on behalf of our community and our values.

She was "spunky, feisty, loved to dance", she said.

Cowell was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, the family said. "They asked him for his identification, and he provided California ID". BART Police says it has ramped up patrols and working video cameras have been placed throughout stations and on the cars.

Court records also show a restraining order against him from 2016, citing "civil harassment of an employee" as the reason, according to KRON4.

Police said there was a dispute between multiple people, and officers detained two individuals.

Authorities say a man fatally stabbed an 18-year-old woman in the neck and wounded her sister as they waited for a train in Oakland. He was apprehended on Monday night (July 23) on a train after an anonymous tipster contacted the authorities, and he remains in police custody.
