SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio woman has been arrested and charged with aggravated robbery after she allegedly robbed her former boyfriend using a kitchen knife earlier this month. 

According to court documents, 33-year-old Jasmin Centeno was staying on the victim's couch "since she did not have a place to stay" when, in the early hours of August 3, they began verbally arguing. Centeno then allegedly "grabbed a kitchen knife and started swinging the knife and attempting to cut the victim," but he was able to avoid it.

Centeno told the victim to "give me your money," and ended up taking off with $150 as well as his cell phone and rent check, the affidavit states. 

Centeno was taken into custody shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday. As of 6 p.m. Wednesday, she was still in jail on a $50,000 bond.
