Sim allegedly stabbed Jesse Garay of North Hollywood after an altercation on Friday night at the Metro Red Line station at 6250 Hollywood Boulevard.
Todd Martens was one of many commuters on board who was witnessed the incident.
“When I saw (the knife), I was just kind of paralyzed, like staring at the knife,” Martens said. “And then he moved forward and I just kind of feared the worst, and the next time I looked up, the man was on the ground. Everybody was running to the back of the train.” It was the first-ever subway murder in Los Angeles.
