67-year-old Phoeba Harper is jailed in lieu of a $5,000 bond after reportedly pulling a pocket knife on her roommate. Officers arrived at the residence on Dickerson Pike, where a witness and roommate explained Harper had entered the victim’s room as he went to the kitchen and was taking a bracelet. She then produced a knife and stated she was going to cut him if he came near her. Officers went inside to find Harper sitting on the couch while smoking a cigarette. She began to talk to officers about a man who wasn’t there, and officers were informed she suffers from dementia. She was placed into custody and charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, as the victim stated he was in fear for his life and scared of her. Officers report he appeared “shook” by the experience.
