A woman with a machete shouted violent threats about the Kardashians after walking into their DASH West Hollywood store on Thursday, September 21, Us Weekly can confirm. 

“Maricia Medrano walked into the DASH store in West Hollywood on Thursday morning and pointed a gun at the cashier and shouted ‘Stay away from Cuba,'” the Los Angeles Sheriff Department tells Us Weekly. “Medrano was also knocking merchandise off the counter as she shouted. She pointed her weapon at a second employee before leaving the store. Medrano returned two hours later with a machete and used it to hit the store’s front door frame before again leaving. Detectives arrested Medrano at her Los Angeles home on Thursday night, she was taken into custody without incident. A search of her residence recovered two airsoft guns similar to those used in the incident.”
