The department wrote:

On February 8, 2024, officers responded to the 800 block of Edwards Ferry Road, NE, to serve a warrant on a subject. When officers encountered the subject, she swung a sword at one of them and fled into a residence.

Another person in the area reported that the subject also swung the sword at them.
