Officers from the St. Cloud Police department were called to a residence Saturday on 8th Ave. South after they received complaints of a woman attempting to assault people with an ax.
Officers say when they arrived, 53-year-old Shelley Goff was seen holding an ax when she then ran into her home and barricaded herself in.
Witnesses say the Goff attempted to hit a 44-year-old man working on a ladder nearby. She also threatened to strike a 52-year-old woman who was biking in the neighborhood with her ax.
Neither victims sustained any injuries from Goff’s attacks.
Due to the violent nature crisis negotiators and St. Cloud SWAT were called to take Goff into custody.
Goff was taken to the Stearns County Jail and is being held on 2 counts of 2nd degree assault which is considered a felony.
