Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 21-year-old Zachary woman Saturday night accused of chasing a man with a razor and cutting him, which was captured on video.
Cynthia McKneely arrived at a man’s house in the 11000 block of West England Avenue, angry he had not watched their child after she asked home to babysit, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.
An argument ensued, and at some point McKneely went back to her car, pulled out a razor and began chasing the man with it, according to the report.
She also grabbed and threw his iPhone, damaging the screen, the report says. The man had a cut on one of his hands and scratches on his arms.
Deputies say the man was able to show them a video of McKneely chasing him with the razor, though it is unclear where the video came from.
McKneely, of 4046 Driftwood, Zachary, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of aggravated battery and simple damage to property.
Zachary police arrest two for pointing gun at residents
