Metropolitan Police responded to an allegedly armed man on the tracks of the Red metro line in Washington DC on Monday, according to local media reports.
Videos showing a man walking on railways have emerged online, with some reports suggesting that he was trying to run away from police officers who believe that he is armed with a knife. Later, according to reports, the man was arrested.
The incident reportedly took place at the Judiciary Square metro station.
The reported pursuit resulted in train traffic on the line between NoMa-Gallaudet U and Farragut North being suspended and shuttle bus service offered instead.
Neither DC police nor DC Metro have released any official statement in regard to the matter. A suspect has not been identified.
