Female Arson Suspect 'Armed to the Teeth' Arrested at Monaco Train Station

A woman suspected in an arson attack in France was arrested at a train station in Monaco last week after assaulting a passenger while 'armed to the teeth,' according to reports.

The incident unfolded at around 9:45 a.m. on Friday aboard a train traveling along the French Riviera from Nice to Menton.

A 33-year-old female passenger alerted authorities that she had been assaulted by another woman and a male companion, Nice-Matin reports.

When the train stopped in the microstate of Monaco, police arrested the two suspects in the station and turned them over to French authorities who discovered the female was 'heavily armed.'

"Far from being at the end of their surprises, the agents of the Departmental Security discovered on the young woman a whole arsenal: an axe, a brass knuckles, a switchblade knife, a pair of handcuffs and a handgun - which turned out to be fake," Le Figaro reports.

Additionally, the woman was found to be carrying documents apparently stolen from an apartment in Nice which had mysteriously gone up in flames earlier that morning.

The suspect reportedly admitted to investigators that she had set the residence ablaze in retaliation against a woman who was dating her ex-boyfriend.

"Everything leads us to believe that it is indeed she who set the fire. She had previously threatened the tenant to 'burn everything,'" a police source told Le Figaro.

Little information was released about the suspect's companion, who is allegedly a male minor.

The woman faces charges of "damage by fire" and "illegal carrying of a weapon."
