A Bryan woman was arrested early Saturday after police say she attacked a man while holding a paring knife.
According to Bryan police, around 2 a.m., officers were called to a mobile home on Ehlinger Drive on the report of an assault.
Officers spoke to the victim, a 25-year-old man who said Lakendra Rena Crowley, 26, whom he knew, held the tip of a kitchen knife’s blade to his forehead, then swiped the blade toward his throat, police said. The man said he hit Crowley in the face defensively and grabbed her arms to get the knife away from her.
Crowley told police she and the man had argued, and when he began ignoring her, she was upset. A police report notes that Crowley said she retrieved the knife for self-defense in case the victim became physical with her and that she intended to stab him.
The man was not injured. Crowley had several scratches on her arms, police said.
She is charged with aggravated assault of a family member with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. She is being held in the Brazos County Jail on $12,000 bond.
