WASHINGTON -

Metro Transit Police have released surveillance images of four persons of interest sought in connection with a Metrobus stabbing Tuesday morning in Anacostia.

Police responded to Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and W Street in Southeast D.C. at around 2:20 a.m. Tuesday for a report of an altercation aboard the 93-route Metrobus. Officers found an adult female with stab wounds and another adult female with blunt force injuries to her head and back.

Both women were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
