A 27-year-old Miami man was booked into jail on charges related to the Friday daytime stabbing of an individual at a Miami-Dade Metromover station — while another suspect who committed a stabbing downtown several minutes before that incident Friday remains at large.

Christopher Edward Coleman was charged Saturday with one count of aggravated battery and one count of carrying a concealed weapon. He is accused of stabbing an unidentified victim at the Metromover station at Northeast Second Avenue at Northeast 11th Street.

The victim was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in stable condition.

Some minutes earlier Friday afternoon, a separate, unrelated stabbing occurred at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center transit station at 111 NW First St. That suspect has not been identified, a Miami-Dade spokesman said. That victim was also taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in stable condition.

Public records show Coleman’s last known address was the Chapman Partnership homeless shelter. A representative for the shelter could not immediately be reached.

Coleman is being held on $21,000 bond, according to Miami-Dade’s booking website.
