JONESBORO, Ark. – Just a few hours into 2018 and a Jonesboro woman found herself the victim of a vicious assault which left her unconscious and in a hospital emergency room.
Just before 9 PM Monday night, Jonesboro police were dispatched to NEA Baptist Hospital where the ER was caring for a victim who reported she had been “jumped” by a group of females. The alleged female victim, 18, of Parkin, said she was at her aunt’s house loading items into her vehicle when another car pulled up behind her.
Out of the car came Amanda Gray, 21, of Jonesboro, and four others who were not identified in the report. The victim said Gray pushed her down, jumped on top of her and bit her nose. That’s when all the females reportedly started kicking and punching the victim. She lost consciousness, she said, and woke up being loaded into the car to be taken to the hospital.
Several witnesses were present – one of which tried to break up the fight. He reported his ankle was sprained and possibly broken after one of the suspects shoved him against a car.
The victim’s nose had teeth marks on it and broken skin. She had scratches on her face as well. The injuries were photographed.
The suspects face third degree battery charges. If you saw the incident or know more, contact Crimestoppers at 870-935-STOP.
