Two men in the shelter area got into a fistfight over the sale of folding knife. A nearby security guard intervened to break up the fight. At the same time a female adult ran up to the scuffle, pulling the knife from the male’s hand and ran off with it. Police arrived and found the female nearby, confronting and commanding her to drop the knife. She threw down the knife but refused to identify herself and resisted as the officer attempted to take her into custody. Ultimately she was handcuffed and then began to calm down. Racehorse Rainee (7/4/81) was booked for Robbery, Fleeing, and Resisting. No one was injured during the incident.
