Wilmington police arrested a woman who asked a man to share his sandwich and then allegedly attacked him while waiting for a bus to come.

Police said the woman, Shoanetta Gale, walked up to a man eating a sandwich at a bus stop on the 2800 block of Northeast Boulevard Saturday and asked him to share it. She then pulled out a .22 caliber handgun, pointed it at the man and demanded money, police said.
