YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Youngstown woman was arrested early Wednesday morning after police said she threw an ashtray at a man’s head and threatened to cut a woman’s throat.

The alleged victims who lived in the building with the suspect told police that Loray Triplett had been “acting weird and violent” for the past couple of days. Another man told police that Triplett said she was going to kill someone.

Police said Triplett’s threats were recorded on video by one of the victims, and the landlord of the building on Glenwood Avenue told police that she planned to evict her.

When officers arrived, Triplett refused to come out of her room, saying she was going to sleep and that she “is a woman of God and that he is protecting her,” according to a Youngstown Police report. Police said Triplett continued her rambling, and when asked if she is allergic to anything, she responded “devils and demons” later calling an officer a “white devil.”

An officer kicked down the door due to Triplett’s increasingly violent behavior and threats, according to the report. She was charged with felonious assault, aggravated menacing, obstructing official business and resisting arrest and taken to Mahoning County Jail.

Triplett was scheduled to appear in Youngstown Municipal Court on Wednesday.
