According to Corona Police Department officials, the incident occurred on Wednesday, December 6 at approximately 6:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Gianni Drive.
The suspect knocked on victim Lauren Luna’s front door and when she opened the door, he saw the woman holding a knife. “I saw a knife in her hand and she was playing with it,” he told me. “Where’s Levon? I know he’s here.”
“I thought I was going to die, I thought that woman was going to murder our whole family,” Lauren recalled. She told the intruder that there was no one by that name in the apartment. “I tried to close the door, but she forced her way in, raised the knife in front of my face and started pushing me away,” Lauren said.
Her husband, James Luna, who was standing just a few feet behind his wife with their one-year-old daughter, said the experience was terrifying. He said, “I mean, I thought we were going to die. I thought it would be the last time I would be with my family.”
The woman brandishing the knife remained in the family’s apartment for two or three minutes, but as she began looking for Levin, Luna took her knives, locked herself on the balcony and began screaming for help.
“Our apartment is on the second floor, which means either she’s gone or we’re going to die here,” James said.
Eventually the woman left, but returned on Thursday and knocked on her neighbour’s door. “I was scared that this woman would keep coming back until she was finally arrested,” Lauren said.
