A woman made contact with an officer at the police station to report that she was being harassed by a man who at the time of the harassment was being held at the Faulkner County Detention Center. The woman told the officer that she was told that the suspect was allowed to have his phone at the time so he could contact people about him being arrested. The suspect sent a text message to the woman to warn her that she "would get what is coming to her."

2. Miscellaneous incident, 1400 block of Huebner Street. Officers responded to the area in reference to a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, they saw a woman standing outside with a small child and a man standing in the street. The woman told the officers that she and her husband had been arguing about finances and that he had verbally assaulted her. The officer asked the woman what she meant and the woman explained that he had been yelling at her, calling her names and had "got in her face." The officer asked the woman if her husband had hit her or acted like he was going to hit her and she denied that he had, but said he had spit in her face. The man stated that he didn’t intentionally spit in her face and when he was yelling he may have gotten too close to her and "she may have gotten some saliva on her during the yelling." The woman was advised that the officers could not "make her husband stop calling her names if it is done in private and unless there was physical abuse, or apprehension of physical abuse, there was nothing they could do." The couple was advised to settle their issues between themselves and possibly "part ways" before things escalated.

They made contact with a couple who stated that they were being harassed by a woman they had previously worked for and resided with. The man told the officer that he and his girlfriend did not have anywhere to stay so they placed an online ad stating that they needed a place to stay and in return, his girlfriend would assume housekeeping duties. The couple stated that they had moved in with a lady but had since moved out. They stated that since they left, the woman has been harassing them by phone and texts. The man stated that he decided to involve the police when he opened his hotel room door to find a bottle of melatonin pills with a note that read "I hear you can go to jail over these!
