Two women were in custody Monday in the alleged cutting and stabbing of a man on a Blue Line train in South Los Angeles, authorities said.

The man in his early 20s was on the southbound train heading into the Firestone station about 7:20 p.m. Sunday when he became involved in a physical altercation with the two women, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said.

Detectives say the man was "cut and stabbed" by the two women--one in her early 20s, the other in her early 50s--as they came into the station at 8615 Graham Ave.

Sheriff’s fare inspectors learned of the alleged attack and alerted deputies, who arrested the women, said Deputy Mark Pope. A knife was recovered at the scene, and the women were booked in connection with assault with a deadly weapon.

The man was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
