Police arrested Jherika Harrell on Oct. 8 and charged her with aggravated assault for allegedly pistol whipping a man while fighting over a laptop and television.

The laceration was bleeding and he had blood down the side of his face.” Harrell had a knot on the left side of her head, a cut under her left eye and a cut on her forehead. Officers concluded she got those injuries because the victim was acting in self-defense.


On Oct. 8, officers received a report of a stolen vehicle from Mellrich Avenue Northeast. The victim told officers he’d left his gold Honda Accord unlocked with his keys in the ignition.

Police on Oct. 8 responded to a call on Anniston Avenue Southeast concerning a domestic incident. According to the report, “Victims both advised they got into a fight with the suspect-roommate that lives in the same boarding house. The suspect was drunk and went to the mailbox, then pulls out a knife and tells the victims that he will stab both of them. Victim No. 2 was threatened, but Victim No. 1 had to grab a table and put it in front of him to prevent the suspect from getting too close and cutting him.”
