MILL VALLEY (CBS SF) — Mill Valley police arrested a man Thursday who was accused of threatening a Golden Gate Transit bus driver with a knife.

A police officer was flagged down by a bus driver in the area of Miller and Montford avenues at 8:23 a.m., according to Lt. Jacqueline Graf-Reis.

The driver said that after he told a man he couldn’t board without a fare, the man became angry and pointed a knife in the driver’s direction, threatening to “cut” the driver.

Police located a suspect matching the description given by the driver and arrested Matthew May, 24, on suspicion of criminal threats and brandishing a knife. May was found with a folding knife nearby, Graf-Reis said.
