    • Leida Crisostomo was arrested Saturday in Collier County on charges that included aggravated assault and armed robbery.

    A Southwest Florida woman was arrested after allegedly robbing a postal worker and threatening people with a toy gun – all before attempting to flee the scene on a tricycle.

    NBC affiliate WBBH-TV reported that Leida Crisostomo was arrested Saturday in Collier County on charges that included aggravated assault and armed robbery.

    Deputies responded to the scene after reports of a woman pointing a gun at people, arriving to find Crisostomo holding a black and silver weapon which later turned out to be fake.

    Witnesses say Crisostomo pointed the gun at a mail carrier, forcing him out of the truck and making the worker hand her a package out of the back.

    Crisostomo did not resist arrest, reportedly telling deputies she was God and voices in her head were telling her to do things.

    The package was eventually returned to the postal worker and no injuries were reported.
