ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque man is facing charges after police say he got impatient and threatened to stab a city bus driver who was trying to help an elderly woman get onboard.
How did authorities track the man down? Police say the suspect boarded the driver’s bus the next day and was promptly arrested.
KRQE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1aHDcui) that Abel Montelongo was charged last week with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and is being held on $15,000 bail.
According to police, the driver stopped to help an elderly woman with her wheelchair board the bus. Police say that move angered Montelongo.
Investigators say Montelongo then pulled out a four-inch knife and waived it back and forth at the driver before running off.
It was unclear if Montelongo had an attorney.
