WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - A woman was arrested Monday after she allegedly pulled out a weapon and made threats to hospital security.

Angela Ward was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Around 6:45 a.m., Ward was at the United Regional Health Care System and reportedly said she was checking on her husband. A security officer with the hospital said he approached Ward in the south alley of 10th Street because Ward was barred from the property. The officer said once he told Ward she was trespassing, she became irate.

Ward allegedly pulled out a folding knife and said she would stab the “rent-a-cops” if they came toward her, according to authorities.

WFPD arrested Ward and found an outstanding warrant for criminal trespass from a February incident.

Ward remains in the Wichita County Jail and her bond is set at $10,000. The criminal trespass charge from February is set at $1,000.
