From Metro Transit Police:
“Metro Transit Police have arrested a 29-year-old man for assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly threatened a Green Line train operator with a knife this morning.
At approximately 8:40 a.m. today, Metro Transit Police officers responded to Anacostia Station after the operator of a southbound Green Line train reported that he had been threatened with a knife by a male patron, subsequently identified as Norman W. Polk.
Polk allegedly kicked and banged on the door leading to the train operator’s cab while the train was stopped servicing a station. When the operator opened the door to see what was going on, Polk allegedly displayed a three-inch folding knife and verbally threatened the operator for not moving the train fast enough. The operator secured the door and radioed for assistance.
Metro Transit Police responded, and the suspect was arrested on the platform at Anacostia Station without further incident. A knife was recovered at the scene.
The police activity resulted in Green Line delays of approximately 15 minutes during the morning rush hour, and two trains were single-tracked around the incident. There were no injuries.”
