Man Arrested for Threatening Amtrak Crew With Knife

An Oregon man was arrested for threatening Amtrak crew members aboard the Empire Builder as it crossed Wisconsin last Saturday.

Police said Timothy Isaiah Thomas, 31, of Portland tried to use a knife to get into a secure part of the train.

He was arrested during a stop near Oakdale, Wisconsin. Although Thomas reportedly ran away after the train stopped, he was apprehended by shortly thereafter by Wisconsin State Patrol officers after he was spotted walking along a nearby highway.

No one was injured during the incident, which continues to be under investigation.
