Teens target man with pellet guns

A Lawton man was attacked by  teenage boys with pellet guns Tuesday afternoon.

Lawton Police Officer Michael Boudreaux reported that the victim said he had recently been having problems with a couple of boys in his neighborhood, and around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday the boys dropped by his front yard and started to argue with him. The victim said the boys pulled out pistols  all later confirmed to be pellet guns  and shot him 11 times, the report states. 

Boudreaux reported seeing numerous small bruises on the victim's chest and arms that looked like pellet gun wounds. The victim said he knew the boys' address, but he didn't know their names, according to the report.

Woman arrested after violent disturbance

In a separate incident on Wednesday, police responded to a call involving a woman reportedly screaming from atop a vehicle who later punched through a window.

Lawton Police Sgt. Billy Hicks reported that he was first dispatched to the 4400 block of Northwest Baltimore Avenue at noon and saw a woman sitting on top of a vehicle, yelling and cursing at a man who was seated inside the vehicle. The man said he and the woman were arguing because he snatched her clothes, and she took his two laptops, Xbox and TV, Hicks reported. 

The man told Hicks when he tried to leave for work, the woman hopped on top of his vehicle, dented the vehicle's roof and broke the antenna. The man said he then "drove down the street, hoping she would get off the vehicle, but it only enraged her more," the report indicates.

When police talked to the woman, who "wouldn't stop screaming at officers," the woman said the man took all her clothes, put them in his trunk and refused to give them back, so she jumped on top of his vehicle to stop him from leaving  but the man continued to drive around the corner with her still on the roof, Hicks reported.

Before police left, the man and woman agreed to be civil, and they returned each other's items, the report indicates.

But an hour later, police were once more dispatched to the 4400 block of Northwest Baltimore Avenue, and this time, the man stood outside with a swollen cut on his right eye, Hicks reported.

The man said that after police left, he went inside the house and locked the door, but the woman remained outside talking to a friend. He told Hicks he heard a window break and discoverd that the woman had shattered the front window in the living room, before unlocking and entering the house, Hicks reported.
