Angered that her boyfriend did not buy her a Valentine’s Day gift, an Ohio woman last night attacked the man, who barricaded himself inside a bedroom as she threatened to stab him with a kitchen knife, police allege.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputies busted Kierra Reed, a 22-year-old Cincinnati resident, for aggravated menacing, a misdemeanor. {snip}

According to investigators, Reed got into an argument with Henry Brown when she did not receive a Valentine’s Day present from him. Reed, cops allege, initially pushed and scratched Brown, who sought refuge in the apartment’s bedroom

While Brown was locked in the bedroom, Reed “threatened to kill him and cut him,” according to a sheriff’s report. She then got a knife and “began cutting the door in an attempt to get to the victim.”
