Arraignment was postponed Friday for a Glendale man charged with murder in the stabbing death of a passenger aboard a Metro bus in Highland Park.

Allan Jay Milton, 43, of Glendale is accused in the stabbing death of Phillip Melendez of Los Angeles. His arraignment was reset for Nov. 30.

Milton, who’s being held in lieu of $1 million bail, allegedly stabbed Melendez on Monday after getting into an argument with him.

He allegedly fled when the bus stopped at North Figueroa and Meridian streets and was arrested by the sheriff’s Transit Policing Division the next day.

If convicted, Milton could face up to 26 years to life in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Authorities previously said they were looking for three suspects but now say the other two men are considered witnesses to whom investigators would like to speak.
