A Las Vegas woman charged with attempted murder is accused of trying to set a fire to a vehicle while her romantic rival was inside, according to police.

Las Vegas Metro police arrested 22-year-old Teakila Marshall in connection to a reported incident that happened in the 7300 block of W. Lake Mead Boulevard on March 15.

According to an arrest report released Tuesday, Greer Thomas, who was identified as the girlfriend of Marshall's former boyfriend, was waiting outside in a car to pick him up following a family outing. The outing involved the boyfriend, Adrian Lynch, Marshall and their children, according to the report.

Thomas told police, in the report, she had a protection order against Marshall, prohibiting her from being within 100 feet of Thomas. She had parked at an eatery nearby to avoid any conflict, the report described Thomas saying.

In the report, Thomas told detectives Marshall followed Lynch to her car, where, she said, Marshall started banging on the front windshield and kicking a rear-quarter panel.

Thomas told police, in the report, Marshall continued screaming insults at her while she opened the gas tank door and lid.

Detectives described Thomas saying, in the report, that she feared Marshall was about to set fire to her vehicle, which prompted Thomas to call police. Lynch, as described by Thomas in the report, informed Marshall of police coming, prompting her to flee the area.

Police also learned of a number of threats made by Marshall to Thomas via text message since the March incident.

"When I get locked up, I keep a couple of goons with me so watch your back cuz we always stay strapped," one text message was described in the report.

Another text message that said, "[Expletive], I am kill you," was sent to Thomas four times in one day, police described in the report.

Marshall was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, fourth degree arson and malicious injury to a vehicle.
