Olijawon Griffin murder: Suspects in fatal Metro stabbing head to court
It will be “several hours” before the nine suspects in the case of the stabbing death of an 18-year-old man at the Woodley Park Metro station in Washington over the weekend are arraigned Monday, ABC7 has learned.
Police say 18-year-old Olijawon Griffin was stabbed to death early Saturday by a group of youths inside the station after being robbed earlier that night in Adams Morgan.
Investigators say eight of the accused teens face assault and/or robbery charges. A ninth suspect, just 17 years old, faces a murder charge.
Police say a 17-year-old suspect charged with murder has also been charged with aggravated assault and a robbery charge related to the second stabbing victim, who survived.
Decisions are currently being made on whether to charge anyone else in the group as adults.
Griffin was a 2012 graduate of Sherwood High School in Sandy Spring where he was a football player.
