Victoria police said they arrested Regina Hammons Preston after she slashed a landlord with a knife and barricaded herself in her apartment Wednesday afternoon.

Police were called to the woman’s apartment, 3101 Oak Lawn St. Unit 1, about 5:45 p.m., Sgt. Julian Huerta said.

Police arrested Preston about 6:33 p.m. and took her to the Victoria County Jail, Huerta said.

Preston’s landlord, Robert Fumbanks, had been sitting in a convenience store at 2006 N. Ben Wilson St., he said, when Preston entered with a knife and cut his wrist about 5:45 p.m.

Police were called shortly after, said Sgt. Julian Huerta. Preston then moved down the street a few blocks to her apartment where she refused to leave.

After waiting outside her apartment for about 45 minutes, police arrested Preston when she exited the building.

Fumbanks had a slice on the top of his right wrist and had covered it with a bandage, and he was not transported to a hospital.

Fumbanks and Preston had an ongoing landlord-tenant dispute, both Fumbanks and Huerta said.
