Reports are that about 8:20 p.m., Maye called the complainant, who is a vendor at the Ocho Rios Market in St Ann, via phone and made several threats to kill her.
The complainant became fearful for her life and as a result, had to stop going to the market.
The police got wind of the situation and carried out a swift and detailed investigation, which resulted in the woman being located and Maye being arrested on Saturday, April 2.
