    A person has been rushed to Stanford hospital after being stabbed on a VTA train.

    The stabbing was reported at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday on a train traveling along Tasman Drive from Sunnyvale to San Jose, officials said.

    NBC Bay Area has been told a passenger alerted the train operator over an intercom that someone had been stabbed. There were 30 people on the train at the time.

    A suspect is in custody, transportation and public safety officials said.
     
    The victim was taken to a Stanford Hospital with multiple stab wounds.

    The train was held at  the Reamwood station and the passengers had to get  off and transfer to a different train, VTA spokeswoman Colleen Valles said.

    Since the stabbing happened on board the train, the Santa Clara  County Sheriff's Office is handling the investigation.
