Orlando, FL (April 11, 2019) – Last week, a woman from Orlando was arrested after she pulled a gun on a resident who told her to stop feeding stray cats in their neighborhood.
The incident took place around 5:30 a.m. on the morning in question at the 2200 block of west South Street. The woman was identified as Lisa Saunders, who had been putting cat food out on the sidewalk. A resident from Lake Sunset spoke with police to tell them about this.
The woman said that she told Saunders that she should not feed the cats because it was attracting sick felines to the area. Saunders walked to her Nissan Altima and got her firearm. Saunders threatened the woman and then got into her vehicle and drove away.
The victim told police that she recognized Saunders as a local pizza delivery driver. Saunders was eventually picked out of a photo line-up and arrested.
She has since been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and remains in jail on a $10,000 bond.
