Woman with knife arrested

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested a Ruston woman last Wednesday afternoon after a call she was threatening someone with a knife.

Deputies responded to a residence on La. Highway 146 where the victim said Lametria L. Owens, 22, chased him around the house with the knife and threatened to stab him. Owens had been barred previously from returning to the home.

Owens said she went to the house to check on her grandmother. She admitted she made threats to stab the victim and had the knife in a bag she was carrying.

A search of her bag yielded a pocket knife and a glass smoking pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine.

Owens was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for aggravated assault, entry into premises after being forbidden, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
