🕐 1 min read

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Arlington police say a 28-year-old woman is jailed on one count of making a terroristic threat after she walked in the front doors of the police station holding two knives over her head and started swinging the knives toward the desk officer.

The desk officer called for help and one of a number of other officers who responded used his electronic stun gun to subdue Patricia Sayan, of Arlington.

A video from the surveillance camera in the police station Tuesday night shows the officer telling Sayan to back away and drop the knives, her refusal and other officers arriving. The video also shows Sayan collapsing after getting hit by the stun gun.

Police say no one was injured.
