The knife-wielding maniac who allegedly threatened to behead a straphanger on a crowded Manhattan train over the weekend turned himself in on Thursday, authorities said.
Aaron Ramos, 26, surrendered to police just before noon in connection with the frightening incident that took place on a southbound No. 6 subway train at East 77th Street and the Lexington Avenue station around 3:30 p.m. Sunday the Upper East Side, police said.
The armed suspect followed a 35-year-old man into the crowded car and got angry as the train left the station, holding a jackknife, police officers said.
“I’m not going on this train that’s pressed against this door,” Ramos reportedly yelled while repeatedly flicking the blade back and forth at the victim. “I’ll take your head off your damn neck.”
The victim blocked the knifeman and kept him at a distance from the other commuters, police officers said.
When the southbound train arrived at the 68th Street/Lexington Avenue subway station, the suspect fled.
No injuries were reported.
Ramos, from the Bronx, has been charged with threats, according to police.
