Conway Woman Charged After Stabbing Deputies During Struggle

Family members informed deputies Owens had a weapon and was barricaded in her home and had threatened to have a "shootout" with law enforcement.
CONWAY, AR -- A Conway woman appeared in court Monday morning after police say she stabbed a deputy Saturday night.

Law officials responded to 9 Green Lane around midnight Saturday in reference to a suicide threat after Francis E. Owens, 54, advised she was going to jump off Toad Suck Bridge.

Family members informed deputies Owens had a weapon and was barricaded in her home and had threatened to have a "shootout" with law enforcement.

Upon arrival, deputies were able to talk Owens outside her home, but she proceeded to turn and run.

Deputies witnessed Owens attempting to retrieve a knife from her waistband. A struggle ensued and two deputies were cut. Both were taken to a local hospital where they were treated and released.

Owens was also treated for self-inflicted minor injuries. After being released, Owens was transported to the Faulkner County Jail where she is being charged with two counts of second-degree battery and aggravated assault on a police officer, both class B felonies.

She is being held in Faulkner County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
