Monroe police arrested a Monroe woman on suspicion of aggravated assault with a firearm last week during an investigation of an incident at Belle Bayou Apartments.

When police visited Apt. 5, they were met by a woman carrying a silver and black handgun. The woman was identified as Breanna Rae Edwards, 23, of 2865 Hwy 139, Monroe.

Police secured the handgun and spoke with four other people inside the apartment. The witnesses said Edwards pressed the gun to one of their heads, leaving a mark. Edwards also pointed the gun at them several times, they said. They claimed Edwards forbade them from leaving the apartment.

She was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center on the above charge as well as on aggravated battery and two counts of false imprisonment.
