JONESBORO, Ark. – Two women are currently facing charges of aggravated assault after an incident on Friday night in Jonesboro where they allegedly threatened victims with a knife and another sharp object.
The incident occurred around 10:22 PM on October 20 at the 1900-block of Cedar Heights Cove. Police responded to a disturbance in progress, which initially began as an argument involving several women described as acquaintances. However, the situation escalated when the police report indicated that the two suspects produced a knife and another unidentified “sharp object,” threatening the victims.
The suspects have been identified as 35-year-old Kimberly Lucielle Muir from Evening Shade and 50-year-old Patricia A. Lawshea from Jonesboro. Both were initially arrested on felony terroristic threatening charges, but jail records now show that they are facing charges of aggravated assault, which is also classified as a felony.
The incident is under investigation, and further details may emerge as the case progresses.
