A person was stabbed amid a dispute between two groups at the 24th Street BART plaza on Saturday afternoon.
James Allison, a BART spokesperson, said that the victim is expected to survive, according to KNTV. The incident also reportedly delayed BART trains around 5 p.m.

One suspect was arrested and two more fled the scene, according to authorities, who said that two larger groups got into an argument that escalated to the alleged stabbing.
The incident apparently drew a heavy police presence, as Mission Local reported that three San Francisco police cars sped down Mission Street toward the BART station’s northeast plaza.
The incident follows another double stabbing last weekend in SF's Bernal Heights neighborhood, which left one person with life-threatening injuries.
