Authorities arrested a woman on numerous charges after she allegedly threatened several children with a knife.

Lincoln police officers responded to the 1800 block of Knox just after 3 a.m. Sunday where they found 33-year-old Lucy Lookinghorse.

Lookinghorse had been threatening five teenage children, and came towards them with a knife, police said.

A woman who called 911 was able to get the children away and lock Lookinghorse, who was reportedly drunk, in a bedroom. Lookinghorse began kicking the door to get out, and a man who was in the home held the door closed while the rest of the people climbed out a bedroom window, police said.

Lookinghorse refused to comply with officer commands and resisted arrested, police said. Police found several knives in the bedroom where she was taken into custody.

Lookinghorse was arrested for terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest.
