Police: Woman Threatens To Kill Husband When He Doesn’t Bring Her Souvenir

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — A local woman is facing charges after threatening to kill her husband for neglecting to bring her back a souvenir from a recent vacation.

After returning from a trip to Brazil on March 2, the husband of 36-year-old Sandra Guedes was angered because he reportedly did not buy her a memento from his time in South America.

According to a police report obtained by the TC Palm, the husband retired to bed soon after the disagreement. Approximately 10 minutes after, Guedes entered the bedroom to continue the argument.

“[H]e stated Sandra entered the bedroom and told him she ripped the green Harley Davidson t-shirt, poured a bottle of Brazilian Cachaca, and slide the band of a watch he had bought for his friends while in Brazil,” the report, posted on the Palm’s website, noted.

The husband reportedly went to investigate the matter. While checking on the items in another room, Guedes cornered him.

“[She] entered the office with a knife (approximately 12 inches long with a white handle) in her right hand (at her side) and stated to him, ‘If you go back into the bedroom, I am going to kill you and tell the police you harmed me,'” the officer wrote in the report.

After threatening him, the husband told authorities that he yelled out to Guedes’ son from a prior relationship, who was in the house at the time, to warn him about the knife.

“Guedes yelled to [her son] to come out of his bedroom,” the report indicates. “[The son] left and called 911 from a friend’s house.”

When police arrived on the scene, they allegedly found the Brazilian liquor poured down the kitchen drain, the ripped shirt and the sliced watch.

Guedes denied threatening her husband.

Police arrested her and transported her to St. Lucie County Jail, the Palm learned. She was subsequently charged with aggravated assault.
