A woman, wearing a ski mask that covered her entire face except for her eyes, was arrested by Fort Myers Police.
Natalya Soto-Kraujalis, 20, was arrested on Wednesday for wearing suspicious clothing.
At the time of the arrest, Soto-Kraujalis was observed wearing the ski mask and a T-shirt. This led the police to believe that the purpose of the mask was not for warmth.
According to FMPD, Soto-Kraujalis was walking toward Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, an area with numerous open businesses.
Police approached Soto-Kraujalis to inquire about her attire. According to FMPD, she became aggressive and responded, “Don’t worry about it. You clearly don’t know who I am. What’s your badge number!?”
Soto-Kraujalis was arrested by police for battery.
