JONESBORO, Ark. – After a couple broke up, a scorned ex, with a baby, responded with fury with the suspect running her former lover off of the road, getting out of the car, and punching her, as alleged in the police report.

The Jonesboro Police Department incident report begins at 7:08 p.m. Monday, when Officer Jordan Fowler was dispatched to a hit and run accident. Another officer was at the scene of 2200 Matthews Avenue as Fowler was dispatched to search for the suspect, Sequoya Shinice Frazier, 22, of Jonesboro. As the report suggests, Frazier and her girlfriend had broken up, but the alleged victim #1 of the vehicular assault said Frazier has not stopped calling her since. It escalated Monday, when the alleged victim was riding with a female, alleged victim #2. The report says Frazier rammed the two and made them do a complete circle in the roadway. Then, Frazier backed up and rammed them again, the report continues, before getting out of the vehicle and coming up to the window to begin punching alleged victim #2 through the broken window. Said to be scratching and biting, Frazier then tried to get to her ex, but she couldn’t reach her because the car was against a concrete wall. Frazier finally returned back to her vehicle and fled the scene.

This was where Fowler’s search for the suspect picked up. The officer arrived at the area of Hope Avenue and Houghton Street, where Frazier had abandoned her vehicle. She was reportedly headed west – carrying a child. The suspect vehicle had significant front end damage, Fowler said.

Interviews were conducted with the alleged victims along with at least three other witnesses, one of which confirmed to NEA Report he had followed the suspect while on the phone with 911 after the wreck.

On Wednesday, August 16, a probable cause affidavit was presented to Judge David Boling, who found probable cause existed to issue a bench warrant for the arrest of Frazier on the following charges: felony aggravated assault on a family or a household member, felony aggravated assault, felony criminal mischief (damage to the vehicle), and misdemeanor third degree battery.
