Video Shows Moment Cleaver-Wielding Woman Takes Hostage Inside Police Station
California police have released security footage of the moment a woman armed with a meat cleaver took a woman hostage in its Northern California police department lobby.
The Salinas Police Department in California shared a surveillance clip on Twitter which shows the moment 22-year-old Mariel Capulong on Sept. 25 took a 43-year-old woman hostage, with one arm around her neck while wielding a cleaver with her right hand at the Lincoln Avenue building.
The video shows the victim talking to an officer at the lobby’s front desk before leaving. The 43-year-old is then seen on camera reentering while being held in a headlock by Capulong.
