HOUSTON – A woman is in custody after she threatened an apartment manager with violent action, according to authorities.

The incident happened Wednesday at the Yorktown Apartments in the 2600 block of Yorktown Street near The Galleria, according to Harris County Precinct 4 Mark Herman.

When the deputy arrived, Diaz was holding a knife and was threatening to stab the apartment manager. Authorities said the 36-year-old was also threatening to shoot him.
