From Conway Police Department reports
Woman leaves children unattended at night
Authorities were alerted of a child endangerment incident early Saturday morning.
According to an incident report, Conway officers were called out shortly after 1:30 a.m. March 24 to a residence in the 1300 block of Robins Street after a man said he came home and found his girlfriend left a 2- and 10-year-old child home alone.
The man said he came home to find his 2-year-old daughter and his girlfriend's 10-year-old son had been left home alone "for at least two hours by the time he arrived," noting his girlfriend later told him she left the apartment around 10:30 p.m. to go to a club in Little Rock because she thought he'd be home by 11:30 p.m.
In his statement, the man said he was working late and that when he walked into the apartment around 1:30 a.m., his 2-year-old daughter "was at the top of the stairs unattended with the child safety gate opened." He said he was worried that if he'd not arrived in time, she might have fallen down the stairs and injured herself.
After speaking with his girlfriend, he said he learned she'd left to go partying before he'd gotten home from work because the 2 year old was asleep. According to the incident report, the 29-year-old woman said she'd put her 10-year-old child in charge while she was out.
According to the incident report, the 2-year-old girl was released to her father, the man who arrived on scene to find the two children unattended. Because the man was not the 10 year old's father and the boy's biological father was a registered sex offender out of Texas, authorities released him to the Department of Human Services.
Man breaks into grandmother's home, attacks ex-girlfriend
A woman called police after her grandson broke into her home and allegedly attacked his ex-girlfriend in an attempt to leave the home with his infant son.
According to an incident report, officers were called out around 2:30 a.m. to a residence on Grand Falls regarding a man who'd previously been involved in a domestic dispute with the individuals in the home.
"The reporting party ... informed me that her grandson ... as on his way to her house to take his son ... from his ex girlfriend," one officer wrote in his report. "This was important information due to the fact that earlier in the day, [the man and his ex-girlfriend] were involved in a domestic disturbance at the South Donaghey Apartments."
As officers were headed to the residence located in the 100 block of Grand Falls, "screams could be heard coming from the vicinity," according to the incident report. Once on scene, officers noted there were "several females whaling and crying at the front of the house claiming that [the suspect] had broken into the home."
"As I ran past these females, they directed us to the western edge of the home," the officer wrote in his report. "This is where I encountered [the suspect]. The suspect was attempting to leave the scene by cutting through a field close to the home."
Officers were able to detain the suspect in the field and handcuff him.
After cuffing the suspect, officers spoke with the victim and other witnesses on scene. At this point, responding officers learned the suspect climbed into the home through a window and attacked his ex-girlfriend in an attempt to take his son away from her.
The man's grandmother told officers the suspect "rampaged through her house looking for his child," according to the incident report. "To protect her son [the child's mother] attempted to flee from the home. She was however snatched up by her throat and choked by [the suspect]."
The suspect was taken to the county jail and the infant was left with his mother, the suspect's ex-girlfriend, at his grandmother's residence.
