LOWELL, N.C. (WBTV) — A McAdenville woman is sitting behind bars in Gaston County after police said she stabbed a dog to death and threatened officers.
Nora Servidio, 37, is charged with felony cruelty to animals and resisting officers. Lowell police officers said they were dispatched to a home on Oakland Street after a neighbor called saying a woman was acting “out of control.”
According to family and neighbors, Servidio stayed at the home with her ex-boyfriend and young daughter. The ex-boyfriend and the child left the house when Servidio started acting strange.
The neighbor that called police stated in the report that he was “concerned for everyone’s safety.” When officers arrived, they were told that Servidio may have been in the house armed with a knife and possibly a gun.
According to the report, police were made aware that a small dog had already been stabbed to death.
Police could not locate Servidio initially, so they began the process of taking out a warrant. During that process, they were alerted that she was back at the home.
When they arrived got back to the scene, they found Servidio underneath the house. Police did not find the weapon used in the crime.
On the way to the Gaston County Jail, the report states, Servidio “cursed and threatened to kill the responding officer.”
She was placed under a $5,000 bond. Family and friends declined to comment further on the case, but said all the focus is now on the young child.
