Jonesboro woman arrested after cutting man

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police arrested a woman after she reportedly bit and cut a man with a knife.

According to a Jonesboro Police Department incident report, an officer was dispatched to the 2000-block of Belt Street just before 2 a.m. Saturday after someone called about a domestic disturbance.

When the officer arrived, he met with Angela Kitchens, 44, and Otis Prunty, 55, both of Jonesboro.

The officer observed that furniture was broken and stuff was scattered on the floor.

Kitchens started yelling, saying that Prunty hit her multiple times and choked her.

Kitchens also told the officer that neighbors knocked on her door acting like the police department to get Prunty to stop.

Prunty told police that he did not hit her, but that Kitchens punched him in the face, bit him and cut him with a knife.

The officer noticed two cuts on Prunty's arm and what seemed to be bite marks on him as well.

Prunty told the officer that she cut him with a large, silver kitchen knife which was in the sink.

He also said the reason for the apartment being messed up was because he was trying to get away from Kitchens.

Kitchens did not appear to have injuries and the incident report said she got louder and angrier the more officers asked her about the incident.

She denied having a knife or injuring Prunty.

The neighbors then told the officer that nobody knocked on the apartment door pretending to be the police.

Kitchens was arrested for domestic battery and taken to the Craighead County Detention Center.

The knife was also logged into evidence.

Prunty refused to be treated by EMS.
