Clarkston Woman Allegedly Pulls Knife On Driver, Arrested For Aggravated Assault

Lewiston Police Department Press Release: 

On the 09/21/12 at about 10:00 p.m. Lewiston Police responded to a report of a female near Webster School who brandished a knife at a male victim. It was reported the victim had been driving in the area of Webster School and had pulled to the side of the road to make a phone call. The suspect, later identified as Samantha Martin of Clarkston, approached the victim's vehicle from the passenger's side. Martin opened the passenger's side door and entered into the vehicle where she told the victim to drive.

The victim drove the vehicle a short distance and asked Martin who she was and if she was alright. Martin then brandished a knife and held it in front of the victim's face as he drove. Martin appeared to be intoxicated and was making random statements and threats while continuously holding the knife in front of the victim. The victim stopped his vehicle near the intersection of 11th St and 13th Ave where he quickly placed the vehicle in park, removed the keys and fled the area on foot. Once the victim was a safe distance away he contacted the Lewiston Police. Officers located the victim's vehicle where Martin had also fled from. Martin's purse was located on the floor board of the vehicle which contained her Arizona driver's license.

Officers canvassed the area as a second report was called in that Martin had entered into a residence at 1102 15th Ave before being chased away by the homeowner. Officers continued to search the area where Martin was located at 10:25 p.m. hiding in a vehicle parked in the carport of 1102 N St.

Martin was taken into custody without incident where she was booked on one count of Aggravated Assault and two counts of Unlawful Entry.
