ARCADIA – A man was struck and killed by a train approaching the Arcadia Station Thursday while standing on Metro Gold Line tracks, halting service for several hours, according to the sheriff’s department.

The crash was reported at 12:12 a.m. near the Arcadia Station at 200 N. First Ave. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Ramon Montenegro of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Transit Services. His name was withheld pending notification of kin.

“They were definitely in an area they were not supposed to be,” Montenegro said.

The age of the victim was not immediately available, and there was no immediate explanation why that person was on the tracks. No injuries were reported aboard the train.

Train service on one track was restored about 4:30 a.m. and full service on both tracks began about an hour later, Montenegro said.

 A Monterey Park man charged with committing lewd acts on two 10-year-old boys on separate occasions in the restroom of an Arcadia restaurant was found not competent to stand trial Monday and ordered to be transferred to Patton State Hospital.

Kwan Yven Chow, 31, is charged with two counts of lewd acts on a child under 14. The crimes  allegedly occurred Nov. 8 and Nov. 10 at Dave & Buster’s at the Westfield Santa Anita shopping mall.

The second alleged victim “notified his mother soon after the incident had occurred. The mother chased the suspect as he left the restroom, which alerted the business managers of Dave & Buster’s,” according to police.

Chow was detained by security personnel at the mall until police arrived.

In the course of the investigation, detectives identified another 10- year-old boy who Chow allegedly fondled in the eatery’s restroom.

Chow has been in jail since his arrest.

A progress report from the hospital is due on May 11.
