WOMAN WITH KNIFE FORCES CLOSURE OF SOME DEPOT STREETS

(Richmond, IN)--Some streets in Richmond’s Depot District were briefly shut down Tuesday night as police tried to help a mentally-distraught female who had armed herself with a knife.  A brief standoff ensued when she sat down on Elm Place underneath the overpass.  Officers were just about to require patrons of some Depot businesses to stay inside when the knife was removed and the woman was taken into custody.  She was taken to Reid Health for evaluation.
