DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Don’t make the Melanie Villena mad. At least that’s the takeaway from the report filed by Delray Beach Police.

Villena, 48, allegedly used a butter knife to break into the room used by her boyfriend in the house they both share in the unit block of SW 12th Avenue in Delray Beach.

The boyfriend has been seeing someone else.

“I’ll f-you up with this knife,” said Villena as she broke into the room, only to be met by the boyfriend who threw her down to the ground.

The boyfriend’s new girlfriend was apparently there as it happened. Both provided sworn statements to officers who arrested Villena — writing she was aggressive to them as well.

Melanie Villena is now charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, without intent to kill. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on her own recognizance. A court date is pending.
