Woman arrested for kidnapping after threatening friends with a knife
A Garden City woman was arrested Thursday night after allegedly threatening friends with a knife in their apartment.
Boise Police were called around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30 for a report of an "armed subject attempting to enter a residence," said the Boise Police. The home is located on the 7800 block of Ustick Road.
"The victims, who are known to the suspect, tell police the suspect had been consuming alcohol with them," said Boise Police. "Victims tell police the suspect became aggressive and took money that had been laying on a counter while making threatening statements. Witnesses say the suspect then retrieved a kitchen knife, held it to one adult female victims back and ordered her to go to a second apartment at knife point."
In the second apartment, the victims told police that the woman, identified as Marisol Garza, 30 of Garden City, held the victims at knife point while making threats. Garza then left the apartment, and the victims locked her out. When Garza returned she allegedly tried to get back in by using a broom handle. This is when the victims called police.
Garza fled the apartment at this time, but police found her soon after at a residence on Allen Street where she was arrested on two counts of Felony Aggravated Assault, Felony 2nd Degree Kidnapping, Felony Robbery and Assault.
