A woman was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon after she barricaded herself in a central Las Vegas apartment for the second consecutive day, police said.
Officers were called to the Siegel Suites Twain Apartments at 455 E. Twain Ave. around 6:30 p.m. Monday, where police said a woman was “acting erratic” with a large kitchen knife. Nearby apartments were evacuated for hours while officers worked with the woman.
Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Alejandra Zambrano said the caller reported a suicide attempt, and police left after they got the situation under control.
But they were called back to the apartments on Tuesday afternoon when the woman allegedly assaulted someone with a knife, Zambrano said. The woman was taken to the Clark County Detention Center around 4:15 p.m. on a charge of assault or battery with a deadly weapon.
