CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A woman with a growing record of robberies has been arrested after threatening the lives of several different people for money and material items.

Here is a break-down of incidents over the past two weeks:

On Sunday, July 5, Florence Beard is accused of entering a home and threatening a woman and her two children with a knife.

She was let into the home after claiming that her vehicle broke down and needed to call assistance. Beard demanded money from the victim, who eventually gave Florence $30. Florence took the victim's cell phone and fled from the apartment.

Several days prior, a report shows that Beard forced her way into an apartment and held the victim at knife point as she took jewelry and $200.

Beard is listed under several different addresses; her primary address is unknown.

Beard appeared in court on Monday on charges of Aggravated Robbery and Burglary. She's being held on a $750,000 bond.
