South Burlington, VT — On Saturday, South Burlington police responded to a call claiming a woman was threatening people with a knife inside a residence on Swift Street.
Officers arrived on the scene to discover that the suspect, Hillary Kozlowski, 30, had been disarmed and restrained. Prior to being restrained, Kozlowski damaged property and threatened the occupants with a kitchen knife but no one was seriously injured.

Kozlowski was arrested and arraigned in Chittenden Superior Court on Monday on charges of Simple Assault and Unlawful Trespass.
