A WOMAN has been charged with threatening someone with a sharply pointed article, possession of a knife in a public place, common assault, and criminal damage.

Holly Sheridan, 35, of no fixed abode, was arrested in connection with a reported incident in which a woman allegedly assaulted a shop worker and threatened him with scissors at a store in High Street, Rugby.

It is also alleged that the offender caused damage in the shop during the incident on Tuesday morning (April 9).

Following her arrest, officers seized a knife.

She will appear at Warwickshire Magistrates’ Court on April 26.

A 29-year-old man from Rugby arrested at the same time on suspicion of theft from the same shop has been bailed until June while enquiries continue.

He was also arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker after it is alleged he bit an officer while in custody.
