POLICE have arrested Yaping She for attempting to assault a man with a box-cutter on Tuesday in Susupe.

She was charged with assault, assault with a dangerous weapon, and disturbing the peace.

Superior Court Associate Judge Wesley Bogdan imposed a $15,000 cash bail on the defendant, and appointed  Vina Seelam, assistant public defender, to represent her. Assistant Attorney General Erin Toolan appeared for the government.

After the bail hearing, Judge Bogdan remanded the defendant to the custody of the Department of Corrections. He also ordered her to return to court on Oct. 28 at 9 a.m. for a preliminary hearing and on Nov. 10 at 9 a.m. for arraignment.

According to police, the victim was outside a massage parlor establishment when he saw the defendant heading toward him.

The victim greeted her, but the defendant said that she was going to cut him.

The defendant, who was holding a yellow box-cutter in her right hand, then “proceeded to lunge the box-cutter” in the victim’s direction “multiple times.” The victim said the defendant also pulled down her face mask and threatened to spit at him.

The victim then called the police. The two responding officers repeatedly told Yaping She to drop the box-cutter, but she refused to do so. She also started cussing at the officers, police said.

One of the officers drew his firearm, but pointed it at the ground before again instructing the defendant to put the box-cutter down.

When she put the box-cutter down, police arrested her.

No other information about the case or the relationship between the defendant and the victim was available as of press time Thursday.
