Woman arrested in Tulsa for making threats with an axe

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa police arrested a woman saying she was waving two handheld axes, threatening people and damaging property in Tulsa.

TPD says around 7:30 p.m. Sunday they were called to a convenience store near I-244 and Sheridan.

According to the victims, Kiona Samuels was waving two handheld axes at a car in a threatening manner.

As the driver of the car backed up, the victims said Samuels hit the hood with the axe, then broke out a rear passenger side window. Officers say a mom and her two kids were in the car. TPD says she was able to drive away but watched Samuels walk to a nearby convenience store.

Tulsa police say Samuels entered the convenience store and asked to use the phone. When employees said no, she then pulled out an axe again. One of the employees gave Samuels the phone, and she went outside and started using it.

Witnesses say Samuels then threw an axe at a window at the convenience store causing significant damage.

Officers arrived and arrested Samuels for three counts of Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon, Malicious Injury to Property, and Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon.
