    Two men were treated for non-life threatening injuries late Friday following a stabbing on a Richmond-bound train, BART officials said.

    The stabbing occured at the MacArthur station, the very same place where Nia Wilson was killed less than two weeks ago.

    Police were called in just before 8 p.m. after two men got into a heated argument on the train. The fight spilled onto the BART platform at the MacArthur station in Oakland.

    BART officials said one man suffered a cut to the face and the other man had a laceration on his arm. Police temporarily shut down the station to investigate and gather evidence.

    Officials identified the suspect as 27-year-old Solomon Espinosa after they went through surveillance videos of the incident. Espinosa is believed to be a transient in the Oakland area, BART said.

    BART spokesman Chris Filippi said investigators do not think Friday's stabbing has anything to do with Wilson and they said officers have been working a lot of overtime, mostly workng on and around the platforms and the stations.

    "During emergency staffing we should have anywhere from 25 to 30 additional officers on patrol at any given time," said BART Police Department Chief Lance Haight.

    The stabbing comes hours after Wilson's family said goodbye to the 18-year-old at her funeral. Wilson and her older sister were stabbed on July 22 at the MacArthur station. Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene while her older sister managed to survive.

    Police later arrested suspect John Cowell, 27, in connection to the deadly stabbing.
