OKLAHOMA CITY — A woman and her alleged boyfriend were arrested for pulling a “large switchblade knife” at a Valero gas station Monday night.
Police responded to a disturbance call at the 1700 block of N. MacArthur.
The owner of the Valero gas station, Mosarraf Shah, said he had problems with Christina Teague and her alleged boyfriend, Kevin Wilson before.
Shah said one of his employees used to date Teague, and she frequently comes into the gas station looking for her ex, asking where he is.
Shah told police that after Wilson threatened him to reveal where Teague’s ex-boyfriend was, the Valero owner banned the couple from ever coming back to the store.
But on Monday, March 30 around 9:40 p.m., Teague and Wilson showed up to the gas station, asking where her ex was. This time, she was holding what reports say was a “large switchblade knife.” Shah says he went outside to where Teague was talking to customers, and repeatedly told her that he didn’t want any trouble and asked them to leave his property.
That’s when Teague started swinging her knife and trying to stab the gas station owner. Police reports say Shah was almost running backward to avoid being cut or stabbed, saying the weapon came only inches from his chest.
One witness, who was there with his 4-year-old daughter, told police that one of the swings Teague took with the knife was about a foot away from his daughter’s head.
Shah made it back inside to call police, and that’s when the couple left.
Authorities say Teague called police saying the owner of the Valero pulled a knife on her.
But when police arrived at Teague’s apartment, she and Wilson were cuffed and put in the backseat of a patrol car.
When police started talking to Teague, she immediately started crying, and admitted that Shah never pulled a knife during the altercation. She also said that she didn’t go to the Valero for any apparent reason other than to tell the owner to tell her ex-boyfriend to leave her alone.
Teague and Wilson were transported and booked at the Oklahoma County Jail.
