From Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office reports
Woman accused of stabbing boyfriend with scissors
A Conway man called police after his daughter allegedly stabbed her boyfriend last week.
According to an incident report, a 72-year-old man called police shortly before 10:15 p.m. July 15 because his daughter and her boyfriend “have problems” and said “someone was injured, but would not give any more information.”
Deputy Stephen Canino responded to the scene, where he was met by the alleged victim. The 49-year-old man told authorities he and his girlfriend were arguing when she suddenly became violent.
The woman had left the area prior to authorities arriving on scene, the report states.
According to the man’s statement, Shonda Hoskins, 46, of Ohio, “was pushing him around and then took his phone.” When he tried to get his phone back, Hoskins reportedly proceeded to stab in in his left arm and chest.
Canino said he could see a 1-inch laceration on the alleged victim’s arm and that the man’s left shirt sleeve “had a large amount of blood on it.” There was also a “small mark” on the 49-year-old’s chest where Hoskins “stabbed him with the scissors.”
According to the report, the woman took the alleged victim’s phone with her when she left the residence on the night in question.
Out-of-state woman suspected of fraud
A Texas woman is suspected of fraudulently using checks with the same routing number as those used by the Greenbrier Animal Hospital.
A Greenbrier Animal Hospital employee called the sheriff’s office shortly before 4:30 p.m. July 16 after learning two checks were fraudulently cashed from the veterinarian clinic’s account at a bank in Wichita, Kansas.
After speaking with representatives from the Kansas bank, the complainant said he’d been giving conflicting statements about the woman who cashed the checks in question. According to the man’s statement, one employee said the suspect, Alina Garrett of Texas, was not one of the bank’s customers. However, another employee claimed the woman was one of their customers.
The conflicting statements seemed “very odd to him,” according to the report.
While a report regarding the incident was made with the Wichita Police Department, the complainant told deputy Nathan Kelley he also wanted to document the issue locally.
According to the incident report, the two fraudulent checks collectively totaled $2,525.39.
Roommate faces assault charge
A Greenbrier man was arrested last week after reportedly hitting his roommate over the head with a flashlight.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to a residence in the 230 block of Highway 225 East just before 4 p.m. July 16 regarding the altercation.
The alleged victim called 911 after getting hit over the head and proceeded to wait outside by his truck until authorities arrived on scene, according to the incident report.
Once deputy Terry Roper pulled up, the 56-year-old complainant described having an argument that ensued after Mark. A. Ivy, 60, “burst into his room yelling at him over the air conditioner.”
The alleged victim said he attempted to fix the setting back to the way his 60-year-old roommate wanted it when suddenly, “Ivy struck him on the head with a blue MagLife flashlight.”
Ivy claimed he hit his roommate with the flashlight out of self defense, according to the report. However, authorities ultimately arrested the 60-year-old Greenbrier man on one count of aggravated assault on a family or household member following the incident.
