Woman apprehended after Wichita chase

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 24-year-old woman accused of threatening her ex-boyfriend with a knife has been captured after fleeing from officers through Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/16FA1OR ) reports that officers caught the woman Saturday after she caused an accident. A Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor says two people suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Wichita police Sgt. Bruce Watts says a knife was taken from the woman several hours earlier after she threatened to cut her ex-boyfriend's throat. When her ex-boyfriend returned from eating out, he found that his car's tires were slashed and the windows smashed.

Police later received a call that the woman had shown up at her ex-boyfriend's employer with a knife. Responding officers saw the woman speed off and pursued her. Her vehicle reached speeds of 80 to 100 mph.
