FORT LEE, N.J. -- Port Authority police arrested a fare evader after finding a large knife in his backpack that they said he told them he carried "for pigs like you."
Officers grabbed 25-year-old Khajah Gaye after he manipulated the turnstile at the Journal Square PATH station in Jersey City around 5 p.m., the authority's Joseph Pentangelo said.
Gaye, who Pentangelo said didn't have identification, was arrested.
Officers found the knife inside the pack -- which Pentangelo said he told them was "for pigs like you."
Gaye was charged with two weapons possession counts and theft of services and released, pending a court hearing, under New Jersey's 2017 bail reform law.
"There were no injuries and no disruption to transportation," Pentangelo said.
