(by Dan McMenamin) – Two juveniles were arrested after robbing a BART passenger in Oakland on Tuesday afternoon and slashing him when he fought to keep his property, police with the transit agency said.

BART police officers responded at 12:13 p.m. Tuesday to the Fruitvale station to intercept a train that was reported to have two robbery suspects on board.

The suspects fled as the officers arrived but were taken into custody after a foot chase, police said.

during the robbery. The pair was booked into juvenile hall and their names were not released, according to police.
