Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•Aggravated assault, Skyline Drive.

A Center Ridge woman says she was shoved and threatened with a baseball bat by a man in a Walmart parking lot.

Officers responded to the scene in the 1100 block of Skyline Drive around 1:18 p.m. Monday.

The 31-year-old female said the incident began while she waited for a parking spot to empty and encountered a vehicle from the opposite direction who “narrowly missed her car,” the police report states. The woman told police she honked her horn at the vehicle, operated by a white male, in protest.

After the male exited his vehicle, the woman said she exited her vehicle and the two became entangled in a yelling-match, during which the woman said she was shoved by the man. The woman said the man then returned to his vehicle, retrieved a baseball bat and threatened her.

The woman told police she yelled louder until the man returned to his vehicle and drove off.

The man’s vehicle was described as a 2004 or 2005 model Nissan truck. No vehicle color was included in the police report’s description. The woman said the man appeared to be in his 50s.

•Motor vehicle theft, Harkrider Street.

A car dealer says a vehicle that was taken out for a test drive Monday was not returned.

The dealer told police a white male, between 30 and 35 years of age, came into his business in the 1100 block of Harkrider Street, asked to test drive a minivan and never came back.

Police learned the vehicle was on the lot on consignment and was owned by an individual. Neither the dealer nor vehicle owner made contact with police for specifics on the vehicle by 5 p.m. Monday.
