A knife-wielding woman accused of threatening to stab a person and throwing a water bottle at someone was arrested Sunday in New Hampshire.

Police say they responded to the area of 357 Manchester Street after they received a report of a woman threatening people. There, they encountered a woman who matched the suspect description sitting on a bench at Enright Park.

Officials said the woman, who was later identified as 24-year-old Rosita Kumar, was uncooperative and tried to flee from officers.

Witnesses told authorities they were out in a yard when Kumar walked by, yelling and mumbling to herself. She then allegedly began to yell at the witnesses, which prompted one person to call police. Kumar allegedly became agitated and began to curse and yell louder after some people told her to leave. Witnesses said she did not care when she was told there were children present.

The suspect left the area then returned and pulled out a knife. Witnesses told officials she allegedly threatened to stab one of the women present and threw a water bottle at her.

Kumar was arrested and charged with criminal threatening and disorderly conduct. She is scheduled to be arraigned on June 6 at Hillsborough Superior Court. It is unclear if she has an attorney.
