The British Transport Police announced Thursday that a 19-year-old man was arrested after allegedly stabbing another man Wednesday on a London train. A graphic video of the stabbing incident has quickly gone viral on social media.

“A 19-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following an investigation into a stabbing on board a train towards Beckenham junction station,” the British Transport Police said in a statement on Thursday. “A knife has also been recovered.”

The British Transport Police added, “Officers were called to Beckenham junction station just before 4pm yesterday (27 March) following reports of a fight on board a train between Beckenham and Shortlands railway station.”

The British Transport Police explained that officers responded in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police and the London Ambulance Service. According to the British Transport Police, the victim in Wednesday’s stabbing attack was transported to the hospital following the incident.

While the British Transport Police did not disclose the name of the victim, the police noted that the victim was “in his 20’s” and was currently in “critical but stable condition.”

“We understand the concerns of the public following this incident and our detectives have been working tirelessly to investigate,” Superintendent Darren Malpas stated. “I hope this arrest will bring some reassurance to those on the rail network.”

A video of Wednesday’s incident shows a man in a face mask, a black hooded coat, and black pants repeatedly stabbing a man with a large blade as bystanders urged the man to stop attacking the victim. One passenger can be heard screaming, “Stop! F-cking stop it now!”

As the man continues to stab the victim, a passenger can be heard contacting the police for help. At the end of the video, the passenger can be heard telling police, “I’m on the train to Beckenham Junction, and this man’s stabbing someone on the train.”

Prior to Thursday’s update, the British Transport Police had issued an appeal to the public to “come forward” with information regarding Wednesday’s stabbing incident in order to help the authorities locate and arrest the suspect.

“Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was stabbed at Beckenham Junction,” the police stated. “At around 3.56pm on 27 March, we received reports of two men fighting while entering a train at Shortlands railway station. A man sustained serious injuries consistent with being stabbed.”
