A drunken Tube passenger who pulled out a knife and threatened to kill a man as they travelled on the Jubilee Line on Christmas Eve has been jailed.
Daniel Rode, 36, targeted the 39-year-old man after he got on the train at Neasden station on December 24 last year at around 1.30pm.
Blackfriars Crown Court heard Rode, who was drinking, was being a nuisance to other passengers before he sat down next to his victim, threw rubbish at him and threatened to kill him before he pulled out a lock knife.
The victim secretly took a photo of him on his phone before they both got off the train at Green Park.
Rode dropped his knife on an escalator but the victim picked it up and handed it in to staff who called the police.
