Man killed in fatal stabbing on RTD bus, police search for suspect

One man was killed on a Regional Transportation District bus early Thursday morning and the person who stabbed him fled, according to Denver police.

Initial reports indicate that two people got into an argument on the RTD bus at Federal Boulevard and 32nd Avenue and one man stabbed the other, spokesperson Doug Schepman said. The victim was taken to a hospital and died, and the medical examiner will publicly release his identity at a later date. The other man left the bus before he could be apprehended, according to police.

It’s still under investigation if the suspect and the victim knew each other, Schepman said, and police are still investigating the circumstances that led to the fatal stabbing.

Schepman said there were other passengers on the bus at the time of the stabbing.

Investigators are searching for the suspect, and they ask anyone with information about the incident to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
