The stabbing occurred at San Fernando and Windsor roads (map) — a busy, largely commercial area — according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s transit bureau.

Firefighters responded to the 10:27 a.m. call and transported one patient, according to Brandy Villanuevna of the Glendale Fire Department.

A transient stabbed the woman after she got off a bus, Glendale police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. A man was being detained in connection with the stabbing, the Glendale News-Press reported.

A witness said the man “lunged” at the woman, who grabbed her chest.

A little girl then cried, “That man just stabbed my mother,” the witness said.

The woman had injuries that were not life threatening, Lorenz said.
