Kardashian store held up by woman ranting about Cuba

Kim Kardashian on cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia

The woman entered the store in the 8400 block of Melrose Avenue around 11:19 a.m. and pointed the gun at an employee while mumbling incoherently, Watch Sgt. Diana said. She returned later with what appeared to be a machete to shout violent threats about killing the Kardashian family.

"And this is on the cusp of the president speaking at the United Nations", the woman said before wedging the machete between the store's door and frame, leaving it behind as she walked away toward La Cienega Boulevard.

After brandishing her gun at petrified staff, the woman is then alleged to have ranted about Cuba - where the Kardashians took a family trip past year for their reality series - and knocked merchandise off of the counter.

Juanita Navarro also confirmed the woman, who was wearing a jacket with white skulls and a bandana wrapped around her forehead, was the same suspect who had earlier entered the store with the gun. The bespectacled woman wielded a knife and a gun as she screamed to onlookers and employees that the Kardashians will be killed.

No Problems For Big Guns In Carabao Cup
Four more goals take the club's tally to 23 in seven games across all competitions, with just three now conceded. But if one day the manager decides to put me on the bench, I will be ready to help the team from the bench.

According a Fox News reporter, Medrano continued to ramble about Cuba before leaving the machete at the door of the store.

"The Kardashians will be executed if they step on Communist territory!"

Thankfully, the woman, identified as Maria Medrano, was eventually apprehended and arrested.

This was not the first time an attacker went to the Kardashians' boutique. The two incidents come nearly a year after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
