BART trains delayed by police activity, medical emergency

Bay Area Rapid Transit trains from the East Bay into San Francisco International Airport remained delayed Monday morning following police activity and a medical response to different trains, a dispatcher said.

A train at the Pleasant Hill station was stopped about 6 a.m. Monday when BART police received reports that a woman had been punched by an unidentified man, BART police Lt. Gary Cagaanan said.

Neither the victim nor the suspect was at the station when police arrived, and trains were stopped while police searched the area, Cagaanan said.

Further delays were compounded by other problems, a BART dispatcher said.

BART officials received reports that a woman had fainted at the Embarcadero station, so trains were stopped, the dispatcher said. Medics were unable to find the woman when they arrived, she said.

Another train was stopped at the Powell Street station when officials received reports of unattended luggage on the train, the dispatcher said.

The train was stopped, increasing delays, and the luggage was removed by the train operator, the dispatcher said.

Trains are working to catch up to schedule, she said.
