Woman wielding box cutter tries to stab hospital employee in emergency room

From WJLA:

D.C. police said a local hospital worker had a close call with a patient wielding a box cutter.

Investigators said the incident happened on March 2 in MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s emergency room.

The arrest report shows 21-year-old Lashawn Alexander posed as a fire extinguisher inspector to gain access to the hospital’s command center.

Once inside, the report says Alexander tried to stab a female worker with a box cutter twice. Both times the victim was able to get out of the way.

According to detectives, Alexander told the worker, “You coming with me,” and then forced the worker to take Alexander across the hospital to see Alexander’s sister.
