A St. Augustine woman was accused of aggravated assault Tuesday after threatening another woman with a knife when she refused to give her a slice of pizza, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.
De’Erica Cooks, 22, became angry after an unidentified woman said “no” when Cooks asked for a slice of her pizza, according to an offense report. Cooks then said, “I’m going to cut you,” while holding a steak knife in her hand, according to witness statements. The woman who was threatened by Cooks told the Sheriff’s Office that Cooks then tried to attack her with the knife and that she feared for her life.
A man in the house was able to wrestle the knife away from Cooks, but she grabbed another one, according to the report. Cooks told investigators she does not remember much during her fit of anger, the report states.
Cooks was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and held on $1,500 bond.
