  • A man held a razor blade to a woman’s throat during a JetBlue flight on Tuesday, prosecutors say

  • The man allegedly told the woman to stop filming while holding the knife for her.

  • He was charged with carrying a weapon on an airplane and assault with a dangerous weapon.

A JetBlue passenger held a straight razor to a woman’s throat during a flight on Monday, federal prosecutors said.

Merrill Darrell Fackrell, 41, was charged with assault after the flight from JFK in New York to Salt Lake City International Airport in Utah.

He was also charged with carrying a weapon on an airplane, according to a Justice Department press release.

The DOJ said Fackrell held the razor to the woman’s throat while she watched a movie. He said the blade was an inch or two long.

His account says he sat next to her, held out his hand in front of the screen, and told her to pause her movie.

She took off her headphones and realized he was holding a blade “a few inches from his skin at his throat/neck,” according to the DOJ statement.

Officials said the woman’s husband was also seated in the same row and went to the front of the plane for help.

The woman then “ran into the driveway to escape” and the man “attempted to stop her by grabbing her shoulder,” the press release said.

JetBlue did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Various federal agencies were investigating how he was able to get the razor onto the plane, The New York Times reported.
