2 teenagers stabbed at Wheaton Metro station

- Police are searching for the people who stabbed two teenagers at the Wheaton Metro station Sunday afternoon.

Investigators say the victims are 15 and 16-year-old boys who are expected to survive. They said the victims and three suspects knew each other.

The stabbings happened a little before 3 p.m. just inside the Metro's west entrance. The entrance was closed for hours as Montgomery County and Metro police investigated.

Montgomery County Police spokesman Paul Starks said police are still trying to identify the two men who stabbed the victims. Starks said the third man involved has been identified but because he will be charged with a lesser crime, police must wait for a warrant to arrest him.

The stabbings occurred directly underneath two Metro surveillance cameras. Starks said investigators are opting not to release the footage yet.
