KENNETT, MO (KAIT) -

A Kennett woman was arrested for attempting to rob a person after asking to use their phone and bathroom.

According to a post on the Kennett Police Department’s Facebook page, officers were called to a home in the 400-block of Slicer Street around 6:30 Sunday morning.

Officers were told the suspect, 37-year-old Tina Wyrick of Kennett, came to the door of the home and asked to use the victim's phone.

After letting Wyrick use the phone, she asked the victim if she could use the bathroom.

The victim checked on Wyrick after some time and found her ingesting drugs.

The victim then told Wyrick to leave, at which time she reportedly attempted to assault the victim with drug paraphernalia, according to the post.

A struggle started and Wyrick reportedly pulled a knife and demanded the victim give her money or other property.

The victim disarmed Wyrick and called the police.

Wyrick was arrested and taken to the Dunklin County Justice Center pending formal charges of attempted first-degree robbery, armed criminal action, and possession of methamphetamine by the Dunklin County Prosecutor’s Office.
