A Conway man say he was beaten, pistol-whipped and threatened to be killed late Sunday night by two black males who kicked in his door.
Conway police officers found the 22-year-old victim on the floor, being held by a friend, when they arrived around 12:13 a.m. Monday at the victim’s residence in the 400 block of Second Avenue.
Police said the victim’s lips were bleeding and had blood running down his face. Officers also noticed the victim was “shaking uncontrollably and initially did not, or could not, respond,” the police report states.
The victim later informed police that two black males broke into his apartment, kicked him several times, hit him with a pistol and demanded money.
Officers were not initially able to ask further questions of the victim who was taken to the emergency room by his father.
Police later made contact with the victim at the emergency room where he told officers the initial knock at his door occurred around 11:30 p.m. Sunday.
The victim said he was not feeling well, and decided not to answer the door. When someone knocked again approximately 15 minutes later, the victim said he again refused to answer.
Within a short period of time, the victim said two black males kicked in his door and approached him on the couch.
The suspects began yelling at the victim and asking where the money was, the police report states. The victim said the suspects continued to yell at him and threatened to kill him.
The victim described one suspect as tall, wearing a black shirt, a hat and yellow gloves. The victim also stated the taller male was holding a pistol, and at one point began hitting him with it repeatedly.
The other suspect was described as short and heavy set, wearing a green shirt and also yellow gloves.
At one point, the victim said the suspects stopped hitting him and began searching his apartment and “ransacked it,” the police report states. However, the victim told police he was “too dazed” to get up.
The victim said he later saw the suspects run out the apartment’s back door, but was unsure of which way they left. The victim said he then left his apartment out of fear the suspects would return and kill him.
The police report states “evidence of marijuana” was found in the residence, however, officers were notified “the scene should remain secured until a search warrant could be obtained based on the probable cause observed by officers at the residence.”
Police were able to locate a security camera set up outside the residence, however, officers were unable to make contact with the landlord.
