Woman tries to rob with toy gun

"Officers from the Winston-Salem Police Department responded to  150 Grant Hill Ln. in Winston-Salem on a report of an armed robbery.  Upon arrival they units found that an off-duty Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputy, S. R. Bottoms, had the arrestee, Ms. Angelica Amador, 27, of 490 Burkes Crossing Dr. in Winston-Salem, detained.

Investigation revealed the victim, Ms. Ellen Parker of 217 Ridgehaven Drive in Winston-Salem, had loaded her groceries in her vehicle and sat in the driver's seat.  Ms. Amador entered the back passenger seat, and pointed an object believed to be a gun wrapped in an orange bandanna at Ms. Parker. The gun was later determined to be a toy.  Ms. Amador told Ms. Parker to give her the keys or she would kill her.  

Ms. Parker then exited her vehicle screaming for help as she ran back toward Harris Teeter.  Ms. Amador chased Ms. Parker, pointing the object at her and stated she would kill her. Deputy Bottoms, witnessing this entire incident, was able to apprehend Ms. Amador by tackling her and holding her on the ground.
Ms. Amador was charged with Attempted Armed Robbery, Attempted Kidnapping and Breaking and Entering Into Auto.
No bond has been set at this time, and the Preliminary Hearing date is pending."
