A 50-year-old woman tried slashing a Summerville man during the early morning hours on Saturday, according to a police report.
Chris Moore, of Rainbow Trail, said his life was endangered when Angela Adams appeared at his house with a knife around 2:30 a.m.
“Mr. Moore advised that Ms. Adams had been threatening him all night via text and voice messages and he was awakened around 2:30 a.m. to her beating on his window yelling for him to come outside. Mr. Moore stated she was beating on the window with a burgundy knife and when he went outside, she attempted to cut him. So he ran in and called 911,” Summerville Policeman Jo Stricklin said.
Officers found Adams nearby on Kelly Street. She gave the officer a false name. She was also unsteady on her feet and smelled of alcohol.
She also denied being on Mr. Moore’s property and denied having a knife. Officers, however, listened to a recording Mr. Moore had taken of Adams during the incident. The decision was to jail her.
“While waiting for the sally port door to open at the jail, Ms. Adams advised that she still had the knife inside her bra. I female jail officer was asked to recover the knife from her bra and an open red-handled knife was removed,” Officer Stricklin stated.
Adams was arrested for aggravated assault, crossing a guard line with a weapon, giving a false name, obstruction of an officer and public intoxication, according to reports.
