Woman arrested after allegedly stabbing man with glass and setting fire


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Samantha Sofia Frank, 22, was arrested this morning after allegedly setting a fire outside an apartment, forcing her way in, stabbing the resident with a piece of glass, and smearing blood on an officer. She has been charged with aggravated battery, battery on a law enforcement officer, arson, and burglary of an occupied dwelling.

According to a release from Gainesville Police Department, at 6:45 a.m. this morning, GPD officers responded to the Hideaway Apartments at 2800 SW Williston Rd. They discovered that a female suspect had intentionally set a bundle of papers and cloth on fire and then knocked on the victim’s door. When the resident opened the door, the suspect forced her way in and kicked the burning bundle into the apartment. As the victim pushed her outside, she stabbed him in the shoulder with a piece of glass, causing a deep laceration. The suspect also had cuts to her hands and smeared blood on an officer’s pants and arms upon detention. GPD stated that it doesn’t appear that the suspect and victim know each other, and no motive has been identified.

Frank has no local criminal history.

  • Lmao, these mugshots and stories seriously make my day, still trying to figure out what’s going on in the world? Joe Biden’s the president!

    • What does Biden have to do with the story. Original Thought. It’s hard.

      • Pretty simple, without a doubt she fits the Joe Biden supporter mold. Everything was supposed to be better when he took office.

        • What about the racist hicks locked up during the Trump years? Did Trump’s administration have anything to do with those crybaby hicks getting locked up?

          • Sounds like you’re just as racist! Since you’re Mexican can I call you an illegal spick?

          • The word is spic*. And I’m Mexican and Puerto Rican. And have forgotten more than what most hicks have learned. I was born here. I’m sure my vocabulary extremely superior to yours. Can I call you a crybaby hick? Or a fake tough guy badge groupie? More my personal favorite, Ham brained inbreed?

          • It is a shame your father didn’t pull out two seconds earlier. Now, pipe down and let the diabetes do its job.

          • Another ham brained inbreed. Let heart disease or early onset dementia do it’s job.

      • In a world where a plagiarizing liar like joe b is elected Prez this is what you see.

  • Another femme fatale byproduct of gender dysphasia perhaps? Feminists need to to learn time management skills: be a woman while your eggs are still good, then be whatever you feel like later after the kids grow up. Not vice versa 👹🤡🤪

  • TV20 said she … is not booked into the jail yet… This is code for she got Baker Acted after a trip to Vista… So now you have to CCW a fire extinguisher as well. Check!

  • She looks like a real stud with her red rooster hair. Too bad he didn’t give her a broken nose or something, after she had stabbed him. Talk about “a rude awakening” !

  • He probably boned her girlfriend. And she probably voted for Biden, Poe, and Ward.

  • My guess is this person has some mental health issues and the compassionate comments never cease to amaze me. The conservative christians really do love and have compassion for all people. I pray that none of the loving commentors ever have a mental health moment that gets in the paper.

    • Still saying just because a person is mentally ill doesn’t give that individual the right to maime or kill someone else or in addition, light something on fire. From your comment, it’s okay because no one died. Here’s news for you, it’s NOT okay.
      Tired of the excuses for violent behaviors.

    • We value law and order over hurt feewings. How do you think the traumatized victim feels?

    • First off, when did I say that what she did was okay? I didn’t, so reading comprehension is a challenge here. Not making excuses for violent behavior. I do feel bad for the victim, never said I didn’t, Once again the reading comprehension thing…Not a bleeding heart either, never said I didn’t value law and order either…all I said was that the comments were not compassionate or Christian….
      Following your thought process, she might have voted for Trump, most wackadoodles do, her hair is red to match her MAGA hat, she probably watches Fox News because she is looking for a fox.
      See anyone can make stupid comments with no actual thought involved
      Now go ahead and make dumb comments that insult me based on your narrow minded beliefs and further prove what I said.

      • Take her somewhere to get the demon or demons cast out. That would be laughed at nowadays but is probably the real Christian answer. Was she performing a spell with a fire and a blood sacrifice? I think the hair is devil/Satan red instead of MAGA. Satanism, transgenderism, and Antiifa all walk hand in hand.

      • You said, “My guess is this person has some mental health issues.” Apparently your ability to diagnose a person’s medical issues is as proficient as your memory.

        It didn’t take too long to come to that conclusion.

  • Historically, Christians have been volatile, judgmental and trying to forcefully convert others since Roman times. The Crusades and so many others come to mind.

    Quote of all time: “The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.” – Brennan Manning

    Have a lovely day.

    • Are you confusing Christianity and Islam in your first paragraph? I think you must be.

    • Another great quote is… “Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” ~ Mark 3:28 – 29
