WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Nine suspects are scheduled to appear in court in the stabbing death of an 18-year-old man at the Woodley Park Metro station in Washington over the weekend.

The suspects are due in court Monday. Police say 18-year-old Olijawon Griffin was stabbed to death early Saturday by a group of youths inside the station after being robbed earlier that night in Adams Morgan. The group robbed Griffin of his jacket and cell phone.

Police say a 17-year-old suspect charged with murder has also been charged with aggravated assault and a robbery charge related to the second stabbing victim, who survived.

Griffin was a 2012 graduate of Sherwood High School in Sandy Spring where he was a football player.
