"It was, in my close to 30 years of police experience, probably one of the most vicious attacks that I've seen", he said.

Let's not forget Dylann Roof, who shot and killed nine people at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston in 2015, was allegedly taken to Burger King after his gentle arrest without incident.

"It's more reminiscent of a prison yard assault", Rojas said.

Below are 3 images of John Cowell.

"This is the first step to achieving justice for Nia and her family", Rojas said. Nia's slaying was the third BART-related death in a week, Rojas said. Cowell apparently got on the same train as Nia and her two sisters in Concord on Sunday, and disembarked when they did at the MacArthur station. "We haven't connected him to any type of radical group or white supremacist group or anything like that", BART Police Chief Carlos Rojas said. Both Nia and Letifah were stabbed in the neck, but only Nia's wounds were fatal.

"We're very glad that less than 24 hours, we were able to get this suspect into custody", Rojas said.

Cowell was recently paroled after serving time for second-degree robbery, KRON 4 reported. Kaiser Medical in Richmond filed a restraining order against him after he was accused of threatening to kill an employee in 2016. Those arrests include vandalism, burglary, theft, trespassing, weapon charges, assault with a deadly weapon, stealing a vehicle, shooting into a dwelling, felony assaults and various drug charges.

Nia Wilson was a beloved daughter, sister, and friend.

The Cubs' newest reliever, Jesse Chavez , made his debut with two scoreless innings to finish out the game. Louis Cardinals are now slaughtering the rival Chicago Cubs by a score of 18-4 in the seventh inning.

"And I looked back, and he was wiping off his knife and stood at the stairs and just looked-and from there on, I was just caring for my sister. This man just came up and did all this to my baby", Alicia Greyson told the station as tears streamed out her eyes.

On Sunday, family members gathered together at MacArthur station, embracing and crying, as police worked to recover whatever evidence they could at the train stop.

He was released from the Atascadero state mental hospital in May but "there was not a place for him to go with most of the mental institutions being shut down", the family said, adding that "the system has failed in this instance". She told me to get here to MacArthur park, ' he said. The station reopened Monday morning. "I want justice for my sister", said Wilson. She said the Wilson sisters were returning home after celebrating Nia's late boyfriend's birthday. According to her family she had just graduated from Oakland High School, and wanted to be a "lawyer or do something in criminal justice". "She wouldn't harm a fly". He drowned two years ago in a lake. She was attractive, so inspirational, she had dreams.

"He didn't know us, we didn't know him", said Ms Wilson, who was injured in the attack. "We will bring this suspect to justice".

The 18-year old woman was stabbed to death at a public transit station Sunday evening in Oakland, California, marking the third death in less than a week from unrelated attacks on the Bay Area transit system known as BART.

A homeless man at the Bay Fair Station in San Leandro died Sunday at a hospital, a day after he was punched by an attacker and fell down and hit his head on the pavement. He was identified as Don Stevens, 47.

On Friday, Gerald Bisbee, 51, was found dead in his home from an infection related to an injury in a Wednesday altercation at a Pleasant Hill BART station, reported KRON.
