NEW YORK (AP) New York City police are looking for a man who threatened a woman and children with a knife aboard a city bus.

Police say the man made the threat after the woman told him to stop masturbating and alerted the bus driver.

The incident occurred last month aboard a BX2 bus in the Bronx.

According to Fox 5 News, the man allegedly took out a knife and approached the woman. A struggle ensued but the woman was able to fend him off. Police say the man jumped off the bus when it came to a stop at East 171st Street and Grand Concourse.

The woman and children were not injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
