STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Norwalk woman sneaked into her ex-boyfriend's apartment in Stamford early Wednesday, burned his bedsheets with a hot iron and then turned on the gas hoping her former flame would go up in flames when he lit a cigarette, Stamford Police said.

Ana Ramos, 52, of 19E Merritt Place, was charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree burglary, second-degree threatening and third-degree criminal mischief. 

The woman broke into the Vernon Street apartment at about midnight, Sgt. Kelly Connelly said. She used an iron to burn his sheets before his roommate caught her inside the apartment, Connelly said. 

She left but met her ex-boyfriend outside the apartment and told him she would blow the place up, Connelly said.

The man and his roommate smelled gas, Connelly said. Officers were called and arrested Ramos, who was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, police said.
