PHOENIX — A suspect was arrested with the help of video from a front-door Ring camera, which showed the woman entering her neighbor's home with a knife, police say.

Phoenix police report that on March 23, they responded to an apartment complex near 16th Street and Bell Road.

The victim told police that she woke up when her neighbor, 29-year-old Kiara Jones, threw a cherry-flavored Slurpee on her head. The woman also accused Jones of threatening to slit her throat with the knife.

Ring video from a neighbor's apartment reportedly showed Jones entering the victim's apartment with a large knife, and also leaving the apartment and stabbing the door several times.

Jones later told police that she entered the apartment with a key given to her by her boyfriend. She allegedly said she was invited into the home for three-way sex, but left after seeing her boyfriend was not there.

Police say the Ring video doesn't support her claims.

Jones has been charged with burglary and aggravated assault.
