A man with a folding pocket knife was arrested after causing concern on a MAX train in Beaverton, according to police.

Officers responded to the Beaverton Transit Center on Tuesday night.

By 10:30 p.m., the Beaverton Police Department reported that a text to 911 led to the arrest of a "suspicious person."
