Denis reportedly attempted to stab the victim with a knife through a screen door. When officers tried to arrest her, she resisted, resulting in additional charges of resisting arrest and harassment.

During booking, Denis damaged a cabinet and refused processing, leading to further charges of criminal mischief, obstruction of governmental administration, and criminal tampering.

Denis was transported to the Ontario County Jail for centralized arraignment.
