Police set up a perimeter and told three people who were standing on the porch of the home to exit, one by one.
Police say 27-year-old Alyssa Zebrasky, of Canfield, began walking toward them and said, “I have a knife on me, what are you going to do about that?”
According to the report, officers handcuffed her, while she cried and kicked.
