A woman walked into the Kardashian's DASH clothing store with a gun on Thursday morning just before 11:30 a.m. The woman reportedly pointed the gun at the cashier before knocking down merchandise and waving around the gun. She left the store soon after entering and didn't steal anything.

TMZ first reported the story, and they "can confirm no one from the Kardashian brood was at the store." The revolver-toting woman reportedly began ranting about Cuba after entering the store, saying things like "Free Cuba" and "Stay away from Cuba." Police were called after she left the store.

The woman arrived back at the scene at 1:45 p.m. wielding a knife and was caught on camera because several news sources were on the scene, according to Sergeant Frank Diana of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, West Hollywood division. The woman managed to get into a taxi and leave the scene before law enforcement could arrive. She has yet to be apprehended, according to Diana.

This isn't the first time the store has been hit by vandalism. Earlier this year, over $1,000 worth of merchandise was stolen from the store, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Kim Kardashian was previously held at gunpoint and robbed while in Paris last summer.
