A knife-welding menace was arrested for terrifying passengers on an R train in Brooklyn on Monday morning, police said.

Ivan Nieves, 53, of The Bronx, was on the train when it stopped at the Court Street subway station at 10:10 a.m., and cops quickly boarded the subway car and ordered Nieves to drop the knife, authorities said.

They allegedly repeated the order multiple times before he complied.

He was charged with menacing and weapons possession.
