A 42-year-old homeless woman faces felony vandalism charges after police arrested her for damaging several patrol cars in San Francisco early this morning.

Authorities say the woman was armed with a butcher knife and a hammer and smashed the windshields of at least three vehicles. Witnesses say another homeless man in the area may have managed to disarm the woman and held her at the scene until police arrived to arrest her.
