ARLINGTON, Va. (WNEW/AP) — A man was stabbed and seriously injured Sunday night at the Ballston Metro station, authorities say.

Metro spokeswoman Morgan Dye says the man was stabbed on the platform at the orange line station in Arlington around 8:40 p.m. She says two men were taken into custody and officers found a knife.

Metro says the man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was stabbed in the stomach and arm and the station manager tended to him until paramedics arrived. The motive is unknown and Metro says investigators are reviewing surveillance video.

Trains were single-tracking on the Orange Line between the Ballston and East Falls Church stations, but normal service has since resumed.
