It was a tense few moments for the driver and passengers on a bus in Port Moody.
Port Moody police said an incident began just after 5 p.m. Monday, when a passenger on a Coast Mountain bus called 911 about two men who had reportedly threatened to stab the bus driver.
Police eventually stopped the bus in the 3000-block of St. Johns Street and dealt with the two men.
Investigators said one man, a 22-year-old Port Moody resident, was in possession of a concealed knife.
The suspect, who was not identified, was arrested for uttering threats, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.
He was eventually released on a promise to appear in court with various conditions.
The second man, a 22-year-old Coquitlam resident, was released without charges as investigators determined the first man to be the lone aggressor in the situation.
"Port Moody Police and Transit Police would like to thank the members of the public who reported this incident," said Port Moody police spokesman Const. Luke Van Winkel in a statement.
"Together we can ensure that public transit remains a safe mode of transportation for everyone."
Police note no one was hurt in the incident.
