Monroe police arrested a Monroe woman on suspicion of domestic abuse (aggravated assault) last week after authorities received a complaint from the suspect that her 17-year-old son would not return home.
The son told police he was afraid of returning to his mother's custody because of an argument earlier during which he claimed she—Tiffany Makesha Nelson, 47, of 2800 Grand St., Monroe—picked up a kitchen knife.
“Victim stated that Nelson approached him and stated, 'I will stab you and throw this hot grease on you,'” stated the Sept. 4 arrest report.
The 17-year-old said he feared being stabbed so he left.
During questioning, Nelson denied threatening to stab her son.
A witness provided a statement to police that confirmed the 17-year-old's account, police said.
Nelson was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center.
