Vegas Strip Gift Shop Evacuated Due To Knife-Wielding Woman

Police evacuated a Las Vegas Strip gift shop because a knife-wielding woman inside the business was acting erratically before being taken into custody after SWAT officers were called in.


A police statement on the Monday night incident did not elaborate on the erratic behavior exhibited by the woman but KTNV reported she was naked and the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported she threw her clothes at officers.

Police said the woman was armed with a large knife. She was removed from the business on a stretcher and was taken for a mental evaluation.
