A woman who allegedly threatened officers with a knife Friday barricaded herself for about three hours in a building in the Crenshaw district.

Officers were sent about 2:30 p.m. to the 4000 block of Nicolet Avenue to investigate a report of a knife-wielding woman behaving erratically, according to a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman.
