LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested a woman after they say she committed a robbery and has become "a danger to society."
According to an arrest report, it happened Feb. 16, just after 9 a.m. at an apartment on E. Ormsby Ave., near the intersection of S. Preston St. and E. Oak St.
Police say 29-year-old Amanda R. Wells knocked on the door of the residence. When a woman answered the door, Wells allegedly pushed her way in and began punching and slapping the woman, causing minor injury.
She then began "ransacking" the home, stealing a 9mm handgun with a loaded magazine, a laptop computer and the woman's purse, according to police.
Police say they consider her "a danger to society," and that she was found with someone else's identity.
Wells was arrested and charged with first degree robbery.
