A 21 year old man was stabbed on 14 Sept 2007 whilst travelling between Goodwood and Thornton station on a Metrorail train. The attack happened in broad daylight on a Metro Plus (previously First Class) carriage.

Faraaz Majal, survived the attack which occurred while he was en route to a work function in Vasco. He was stabbed in the back, and suffered a punctured lung.

Majal said that there were three attackers - one was already on the train when he boarded at Cape Town Station and the other two boarded at Mutual Station. One man stabbed him while another robbed a female passenger of her handbag.

The police were alerted at Goodwood Station and Majal was taken to Elsies River Day Hospital by ambulance. He was later transferred to Tygerberg Hospital.
