Metro officials say they're investigating reports of problems with the emergency call system on a Red Line train after a fight broke out.

Passengers say they tried to use the emergency call system yesterday evening to alert the driver about the fight near the Woodley Park station, but they got no response.

Metro officials say they believe there was some communication between passengers on the train and the operator, though, because Metro Police were eventually notified. No one was injured, and no charged were filed.

Woodley Park was the site of a fatal stabbing in November 2011.

Metro officials say they are looking into the reported problem.
