Willimantic Police arrested a 39-year-old woman who is accused of confronting her ex-boyfriend and chasing him around with a kitchen knife.
The man was not injured, nor were the two juveniles in the home at the time, police said.
Police found the suspect soon after she left the apartment.
Authorities have identified her as Mariceli Livsley, of Willimantic, and charged her with disorderly conduct, threatening and risk of injury to a minor.
She was released on a $2,500 non-surety bond and is due in Danielson Superior Court on Aug. 15.
