Girl Threatens To 'Cut Up' Family, Hits Cop
A teenage girl was arrested in Far Rockaway after she threatened to cut up two relatives with a kitchen knife and then attacked a police officer who was trying to restrain her, court records show.
Megan Mansfield, 16, was arrested on September 12, after she had an argument with two relatives, Lucille and Edina Mansfield, inside their home at 20-10 Seagirt Boulevard. Mansfield allegedly banged on a bedroom door where Lucille and Edina were and then put her fist through it. She then went to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and threatened her relatives with it.
"I am going to cut you up," Mansfield allegedly screamed as she waved the knife, according to the allegations, which are detailed in court records.
Police officers from the 101 Precinct responded to the house after the girl's relatives dialed 911. One officer suffered an abrasion to his face after Mansfield allegedly hit him as she flailed her arms "wildly," according to court records.
Mansfield was arrested and charged with two counts of assault, and one count each of menacing, criminal mischief, resisting arrest, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment.
Mansfield was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on September 14, where Judge Fernando Camacho released her on her own recognizance, according to a spokesperson for Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown. She is due back in court on October 2.
