Two people were arrested for walking on the tracks at Richmond BART Station Friday morning, an incident that temporarily delayed trains, according to Bay City News.

A call came in about the person walking south of the station at 8:05 a.m., the newswire reported. A train operator eventually convinced the man to leave the tracks and board a train. He was transported back to Richmond station and taken into custody.

He was one of two people who were spotted on the tracks in West County, with the second person picked up in a separate, nearby location.

The incident caused delays from 20 to 25 minutes.
