An East Hampton woman was arrested by Southampton Village Police on Thursday night after police said she threatened a male acquaintance with a kitchen knife, police said.
Amanda M. Re, 23, was bleeding profusely from cuts to her hand and arm when officers arrived at the residence on Elm Street. According to Detective Sergeant Herman Lamison, after the two began to argue, the man was able to get Ms. Re to leave the home, but then she broke a window to get back inside. She was bleeding from cuts she suffered from the broken window, police said.
To avoid further confrontation, the man barricaded himself inside a room of the house and was not injured, Det. Sgt. Lamison said. Ms. Re allegedly menaced the victim with a kitchen knife, meaning she attempted to place him in reasonable fear of injury or death by displaying the weapon, he added.
Ms. Re was arrested at 7:46 p.m. at the home and charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony, second-degree menacing, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.
She was transported to Southampton Hospital by the Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance for treatment of her injuries and released with an appearance ticket.
