From Conway Police Department reports
Incident reported at Conway motel
Authorities were dispatched to the Skyline Inn last weekend regarding a man who reportedly was injured after he was pushed onto the ground.
According to an incident report, the Conway Police Department was called out around 9:45 p.m. Sunday because a man "had been hit and busted [his] head open."
When officer Adam McNeal arrived on scene, he quickly found the man in question "laying on the sidewalk with blood on his forehead."
The man who called police claimed an individual from Room 129 walked up and pushed his brother onto the ground. However, after questioning the alleged suspect, McNeal learned the 57-year-old man who was bleeding was harassing the suspect's mother.
The 28-year-old Mayflower man accused of injuring the 57-year-old said the alleged victim "was acting extremely intoxicated" when he jumped in front of his mother's vehicle and began "yelling and hitting [the] car."
According to the Mayflower man's statement, he asked the 57-year-old to move several times before "he finally pushed him out of the way and told his mother to go."
A witness told police that the alleged victim was drunk during the incident and that he "stumbled and fell onto the sidewalk where he hit his head."
The Mayflower man also told police his children were in the vehicle with his mother during the incident and that "they were scared."
The alleged victim's brother told police that he tried to stand in the way of the vehicle in question because the "people in the car [were] smoking crack."
Officer McNeal explained the misdemeanor warrants process to all parties involved and provided each individual with the incident number associated with the report prior to leaving the scene, according to the report.
Scammer targets young adults
A Conway teen fell victim to a scam targeted at young adults needing help to pay bills.
According to an incident report, the 19-year-old in question called police Monday morning to report the fraud.
In her statement, the woman said she learned about a program called "Helping Hands" online.
The program claimed "to assist young adults in paying off any bills that they may have," according to the incident report.
Soon after she signed up to participate in the program, the 19-year-old said a woman named "Candice Haywood" called her and said she could place anywhere between $1,500 and $7,500 into her bank account.
The Conway teen told officer Tanner E. Williams that she "allowed Haywood to deposit a check for $1,500 in her Arvest bank account."
Once the money was deposited Haywood reportedly withdrew $200 from the teen's account, the report states.
Immediately after the money was taken from the account, the $1,500 check was canceled and the teen's bank account was left in the negative, according to her statement.
The 19-year-old has since informed the bank about the matter "and they stated that they were going to do their own investigation on the matter," the report states.
