CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Police say a 52-year-old man received severe lacerations when another man attacked him at the light rail station along Old Pineville Road at 3:30 in the afternoon on Saturday.
The suspect struck the victim in the back of the head with an unknown object, and ran off with $50 he found in the wounded man's pocket.
The victim was transported to CMC, and later released.
CMPD is still investigating the case.
The assault comes just a month after another man was beaten on another train.
CATS officials say the incident was not random. They believe the two men know each other.
