Woman faces charges after allegedly threatening boyfriend with knife

LAKE ELMO — A woman faces terroristic threat and interfering with a 9-1-1 call charges following an altercation earlier this month with her boyfriend.

Cheryl Ann Hollinshead was charged Oct. 6 after Washington County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a reported domestic assault at a residence in the 100 block of Cimarron in Lake Elmo.

Hollinshead’s boyfriend of 16 years told deputies he placed the call after he said Hollinshead threatened him and disconnected the call, according to court documents.

The court documents added that Hollinshead’s boyfriend told deputies Hollinshead was off of her medication and was experiencing mood swings. The boyfriend said Hollinshead woke up from a nap, became angry and threw an ashtray at a  television.

After Hollinshead’s boyfriend urged her to calm down, court documents said she left the room, then came back, grabbed a knife, stood close to her boyfriend and told him, “I’ll kill you. I don’t care if I go to jail,” before she dropped the knife.

Hollinshead talked to deputies and admitted to throwing the ashtray and disconnecting the 9-1-1 call but denied threatening her boyfriend with a knife. When asked about the knife she said she didn’t know what happened.
