A 23-year-old former Amherst woman was arrested about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday after she broke a window in the multiple-unit Franklin Street apartment building where she currently lives and then allegedly trying to block police officers from entering her flat.

Shaimaa Aakil was charged with a felony count of reckless endangerment for the broken window, plus criminal mischief and obstructing governmental administration.
