ATLANTIC CITY- Police arrested a man on a Greyhound bus early this morning after he allegedly threatened another passenger.

At 12:51 a.m., the driver called police saying a passenger was threatening others with a gun, Lt. Rodney Ruark said.

Sgt. Frank Timek, a SWAT team leader, arranged for a group of officers to get on the bus, and Dwayne Dantzler was taken into custody, Ruark said.

Dantzler, 30, of the Bronx, verbally threatened a 27-year-old passenger from Saranac Lake, N.Y., telling him he would "blow his head off" if the man did not turn over his money and cell phone, according to the investigation. A gun was never shown.

The victim, who was not named, suffered a small facial laceration during the struggle, Ruark said.

Neither a gun nor the victim's cell phone was recovered. The bus will be taken out of service to drain the septic system in an attempt to recover any evidence, according to the report.

Seven other passengers on the bus did not cooperate with police.

Dantzler is charged with robbery, aggravated assault and making terroristic threats. He is in the Atlantic County Justice Facility on $100,000 bail.

Detective Tom Holton is the lead investigator.
