Woman who ran at deputy with knife was trying to commit suicide by cop, Sheriff’s Office says

The circumstances that led to at least one Broward sheriff’s deputy shooting and wounding an armed Dania Beach woman who charged at them on Wednesday morning keep changing.

At first, Kim Nguyen Cholak was armed with a meat cleaver and chasing another woman when deputies arrived at 103 NE Third St. at about 11:05 a.m., according to Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony.

Then the meat cleaver was changed to a knife, according to a late-afternoon update from the Sheriff’s Office.

Then, after deputies could not locate the woman who was allegedly chased, Cholak, 40, confessed that she made that part of the story up, said Keyla Concepcion, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Office.
