On Friday, March 7, while aboard a Green Line train traveling between Greenbelt and Fort Totten between 9:30 and 9:45 p.m., the below pictured subjects were involved in a physical altercation.

Transit Police boarded the train at Fort Totten to find one of the men with serious injuries. The other man was not aboard the train. The injured man was transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.

Detectives are seeking information from anyone who may have been aboard the train and witnessed the altercation. Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is urged to call Metro Transit Police at (202) 962-2121 and reference case 2014-11573.”


“This evening, Metro Transit Police (MTPD) charged Dionte DANIELS, 22, of Glenarden, Md. with attempted second degree murder, assault and reckless endangerment in connection with an incident that occurred last night aboard a southbound Green Line train.

The assault took place shortly after 9:30 p.m. while the train was traveling in Prince George’s County between Greenbelt and Fort Totten stations. When MTPD officers boarded the train at Fort Totten, they found a 46-year-old male victim unconscious with life threatening injuries. He was transported to an area hospital where he remains in critical condition this evening.

A suspect description and photo was broadcast to MTPD officers throughout the Metrorail system, and a man matching the description was taken into custody a short time later at L’Enfant Plaza Station. That subject was subsequently identified as Dionte DANIELS and an arrest warrant was obtained for the charges related to the Green Line incident.

MTPD detectives continue to seek information from anyone who may have witnessed the incident. Anyone with information is urged to call (202) 962-2121 and reference case 2014-11573.”
