According to authorities, Nakeshia Johnson, 39, pulled out a 10-inch knife while walking up to the victim on West 21st Street around 7:00 p.m. Thursday. Johnson reportedly told the victim to hand over her money.
“She was like ‘give me your money; give me your money,’” said Perez.
“I was at a stop sign, and she was on a bike and stopped right next to my door, and then she was laughing and waving a machete,” said Perez.
Once Perez was able to turn at the stop sign, she got away and called 911.
“She did exactly what she was supposed to do,” said Officer Kelley McKethan of the Bryan Police Department. “She got out of there, she called us, gave us a great description of the suspect. Later we were able to locate someone who fit the description and ultimately arrested a female for that offense.”
Throughout it all, Perez said there was only one thing on her mind.
“I was panicking because I thought something was going to happen to my kids,” said Perez. “They’re everything to me because they’re the only thing I have.”
