IRON COUNTY, Utah – A woman was arrested after she allegedly attempted to rob two anglers by blocking their vehicle with hers, threatening them, and beating on their vehicle with a tire iron.

Deputies from the Iron County  Sheriff’s Office were called to Yankee Meadows Reservoir Wednesday around 9:45 a.m., and when they arrived they found two men who had detained a female they said had attacked them.

The men, who were traveling from St. George to go fishing, told police the woman followed them from I-15 and to the Yankee Meadows Recreation Area. While still on the road, the woman moved her vehicle to block theirs.

The woman then got out and approached and allegedly began to beat on the car with a tire iron while demanding money from the two men. The two men exited the vehicle and were able to subdue the woman until deputies arrived to arrest her.

There were no injuries reported.

Siobahn Hall, a 29-year-old resident of Salt Lake County, was booked into the Iron County Jail on charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, criminal mischief and unlawful detention.

    Obviously Siobahn Hall doesn’t do a lot of preplanning in conjunction with her criminal career. Pretty face but I’d be scared to death of what does on in the brain behind it.

    either she is one of the worst criminals ever or she wasn’t robbing them. im not sure how far she followed them but just from the evidence the story gives her actions sound more like she was trying to get even with the guys for something. (like cutting her off, or bumping her car, etc). its an option she tried to rob people this way but it makes a little more sense to me that she tried to get even for something.

      No, Tim, because it’s my understanding that they want just a natural straight face (for some reason it seems like it’s supposed to be “easier for identification.” I don’t know why.
