Knife-wielding woman apprehended at Fox Studio compound

 March 28, 2024

The historic Fox Studio in Los Angeles was the scene of terror this week when a knife-wielding woman rushed security. 

The Daily Mail cited a statement from the Los Angeles Police (LAPD) department which explained that the woman was first observed Wednesday morning outside the Fox Studio compound which is located on the 10200 block of West Pico.

Woman threatened security guards with a knife after running into building

The unidentified individual is said to have grown "aggressive" when she was initially approached by security personnel around 9:30 a.m.

She is then alleged to have begun "running in and out of traffic, jumping out in front of vehicles" before managing to enter the building.

The woman, who is described as working on the lot but not being a Fox employee, went on to menace security guards with a knife, after which she locked herself on the third floor and threatened to engage in self-harm.

LAPD spokesman Officer David Cuellar explained to the Daily Mail that the woman was eventually convinced to relinquish the knife and surrender to officers.

New York City Council Women's Caucus decries growing street violence

The Daily Mail noted that the Fox Studio compound is commonly referred to as "Movietone City" and features 15 soundstages along with a variety of offices and production facilities.

A number of well-known movies and television shows have been shot at the compound, including "Planet of the Apes," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," "Alien Resurrection," and the "Die Hard" franchise.

Violent behavior by disturbed individuals is hardly confined to Los Angeles, as on Wednesday the New York City Council Women's Caucus complained about a similar phenomenon.

The left-wing organization released a statement on social media explaining that it is "deeply disturbed" and "concerned about widespread reports of attacks against women in NYC that have been confirmed by the NYPD."

"We're calling on the NYPD for an immediate and comprehensive investigation into these incidents with transparent updates to the public," the group added.

Critics note that Daniel Penny was indicted for stopping a violent criminal

However, some critics responded by pointing to the case of Daniel Penny, a former Marine who confronted Jordan Neely after he began threatening subway passengers.

Neely, who had a long history of violence, died after Penny placed him in a chokehold, something which has resulted in manslaughter charges.
