On Thursday, August 16, 2018, at 2:17 pm, deputies responded to the report of a Victor Valley Transit Authority bus driver being threatened on US Highway 395/ Palmdale Road in Adelanto.

The suspect, identified as Janet Henry, did not want to pay the full fare and pulled a 6-inch kitchen knife from the bag she was carrying. Henry pointed the knife at the bus driver, while stepping towards her and verbally threatening her. Henry then got off the bus and walked to Kentucky Fried Chicken with the knife in her hand and told an employee at the restaurant she was going to kill him and everyone in the establishment.

Deputies detained Henry and found her still in possession of the knife. During her arrest, she repeatedly made physical threats against the arresting officers.
