From Conway Police Department reports
Napping after stealing
A 41-year-old man was arrested Sunday after allegedly stealing a woman's vehicle and then crashing it into a mobile home.
The woman first contacted authorities shortly before 9:30 a.m. to report the silver Ford Focus she had purchased the day before was stolen overnight.
The Brookside Trailer Park resident gave officers the name of the man she suspected was responsible for stealing her car along with her cousin's contact information, noting she had just purchased the vehicle from her cousin Saturday.
Officers were paged out again at 10:43 a.m. after the woman said the suspect was out "doing donuts" in the yard before crashing into a mobile home.
"I observed mud all over the trailer and circles in the main drive area," one officer wrote in his report. "[The victim] advised me that [the suspect] then ran her vehicle into a mobile home [after doing donuts in the yard] and started hitting it with a metal bat."
The suspect smashed in her front and back windshields before turning to her and hitting her in the ribs and back with the metal bat, according to the report.
After striking the victim with the bat, the suspect allegedly took off running toward some nearby apartments. The 36-year-old victim told police the suspect was wearing a blue shirt and jeans.
Officers followed a trail of footprints in the mud that led them to the suspect, who was found sleeping in front of one of the apartments at a nearby apartment complex.
When asked for his name and date of birth, the suspect said his name was Turner Turner and that he was born on "12/02." Because he provided a false name and date of birth, the suspect was arrested for obstructing governmental operations. At first, he jerked away to keep officers from handcuffing him, stating, "Man, I can't go back to jail for that." However, after the two fell to the ground during a brief struggle, he consented.
The man told officers he did not want to talk about the incident and that "he was going to sleep and that we could talk later," according to the incident report.
The man was then taken to Baptist Health Medical Center-Conway because he complained of having a broken collarbone. While at the hospital, the suspect refused to comply with nursing staff when asked to urinate in a cup "for medical purposes" and was forced to get a catheter until he'd been treated for his injuries.
Upon being released by hospital staff, the man was taken to the Faulkner County Detention Center.
Downside of dating
A man reported to Conway police Sunday that a woman he'd met on a dating site had robbed him.
Police responded out to the Germantown Apartments shortly before 4:30 p.m. Sunday to speak with the victim.
The 54-year-old man said he'd met a woman about two weeks ago on Badoo, a dating application. He invited the woman over to his apartment and she had a friend drive her there on Sunday.
The woman's friend stayed in the car while she visited with him inside his apartment, according to his statement.
At one point, the woman he'd met online went to check on her friend outside when he'd noticed his wallet was missing.
"[The woman] went to the bathroom and was in there awhile," the man told officers of the moments leading up to the theft. "When she came out, she told [him] she had to go and check on her friend. [The woman] went outside and did not return. [He] noticed that his wallet was missing from his nightstand and called the police."
According to the incident report, the woman made off with about $300 cash and the victim's bank card.
