A Usual Suspect is Arrested for Allegedly Stabbing a BART Train Passenger

FREMONT—A man often in trouble with the law now faces charges in connection with stabbing a train passenger. The suspect was arrested last week at the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART station.

Terrell J. Coffer, 44 of Oakland, allegedly attacked a 69-year-old man on September 18. This is the third time this year that Coffer finds himself behind county bars.

The victim was attacked with a knife at 11:54 a.m., as a train was approaching the station. He was critically injured and transported to a hospital to receive medical treatment.

BART police quickly identified Coffer as the suspected attacker. However, the station was closed for approximately one hour while the crime scene was investigated.

Coffer was detained by a BART officer, who spotted him before he was able to leave the station. Coffer was placed under arrest at 12:11 p.m.

He was transported and booked into Santa Rita Jail, where he remains in custody, pending a plea hearing on September 29.

Coffer is charged with committing willful, deliberate, premeditated attempted murder. He is also charged with use of a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury, and battery on public transit personnel.
