The Denville Police Department was notified of a disturbance and a threat at a house located in the Indian Lake section of Denville, NJ.
When police officers arrived at the residence, they spoke with a female resident. The victim informed police that the 19-year-old suspect had showed up at the house with the intent of threatening the victim. There was a brief verbal altercation, during which the suspect allegedly held a 28-inch, wooden baseball bat and threatened the victim.
After reportedly issuing the threat, the suspect ran out of the house and fled the scene in a motor vehicle.
The suspect, who lives in Hamburg NJ, was later located by Denville police and arrested.
The suspect was subsequently charged with several crimes, including disorderly conduct, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
The suspect may also face charges for aggravated assault, depending on what law enforcement determines during the course of its investigation.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the suspect was released from custody on her own recognizance. She will be required to appear in Morris County Superior Court in Morristown NJ at a later date to answer the charges against her.
