From Conway Police Department reports
Drunk at the ministry
Last Chance Ministries staff contacted Conway police Monday regarding a man they suspected was drunk and causing a disturbance.
Officers were called out to the shelter shortly after 8:30 p.m. Monday in reference to a 47-year-old man who was "causing a disturbance [among] the individuals at Last Chance Ministries."
When officers arrived on scene to speak with the suspect, they immediately noted the man smelled strongly of alcohol, he could not stand without swaying and his eyes were bloodshot and watery.
The man admitted to drinking "a couple of pitchers" and said he'd also smoked marijuana earlier that night, according to the incident report.
The suspect, who proved himself an "annoyance" to others at the ministry, was arrested on scene and taken to the county jail on suspicion of public intoxication.
Potential home invasion
A woman told authorities on Tuesday that a man came into her house the night before while she was home alone.
The 21-year-old woman said she was home alone Monday when an unknown white male walked into her house in the 1900 block of Washington Avenue around 9:45 p.m.
According to her statement, her husband was at work at the time the stranger welcomed himself inside the residence.
"[The woman] stated that her husband was at work when a black car pulled into her driveway," the report reads. "She stated that a white male, approximately 24 year old with long brown hair, exited the vehicle and walked up to her residence."
When the man walked into her home, he immediately saw the woman was home and left, the woman told Conway police.
"She stated the male entered her residence and made eye contact with [her] and asked, 'Am I in the right house?' [The woman] stated, 'No' and the male ran out of the residence, got in his vehicle and left, driving in an erratic manner," the incident report reads.
Officers agreed to conduct extra patrol through the woman's neighborhood following her complaint.
A 20-year-old Forest Lake Estates trailer park resident said someone threw rocks through two of her windows last week.
The woman called authorities Tuesday afternoon regarding a criminal mischief report she wanted to file for an incident that occurred sometime between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Feb. 21. The two damaged windows included one on the north side of the trailer and one on the back east side of the trailer.
According to her statement, the woman said she suspected another Forest Lake Estates resident was responsible for breaking her windows.
"[The woman] stated that she had been asking other people in the trailer park and learned that a Hispanic male ... had been breaking windows in the trailer park," the woman said in her statement, noting the suspect was a juvenile.
Officers located the 9-year-old suspect at a nearby trailer and spoke with the boy and his parents. The juvenile suspect admitted to breaking windows in the neighborhood "but that it had happened last month."
The boy's mother said her son has not been able to play outside since the incidents last month, noting she also hasn't allowed her son to ride the bus while he's been in trouble and has been picking him up from and dropping him off at school herself.
The woman said she does not believe her son was responsible for the incident that occurred last week and said she suspected some of the older teens that lived in the neighborhood.
