It was an interesting week for weird attempted murder and vehicle-related crime. Here’s the weekly re-cap of all things strange in Oklahoma:
Over The Weekend
A Mayes County man was arrested after attacking his girlfriend with a hatchet while she was driving. Another man, who was a passenger in the vehicle, also sustained injuries when he tried to assist the woman. Both are expected to recover.
The banana-wielding flasher from Tulsa (who got a mention in last week’s round-up) turned himself in only to bond himself out of jail. Authorities still aren’t sure about the significance of the banana.
A man in Prague was arrested after attempting to run over an animal rescue worker after the rescue refused to take two animals. He reportedly drove a mile down the road with the woman on top of his vehicle. She sustained several broken bones but is expected to recover.
Authorities in Loco are attempting to find new evidence in a 31 year-old missing person’s case. The Stephens County Sheriff’s Dept. is using ground penetrating radar for the second time to search the former property of Frankie “Bonnie” Duvall, who went missing in 1986.
A Del City family set up their own sting operation to lure a 33 year-old man who allegedly tried to set up a sexual encounter with a 15 year-old family member. When the man showed up the adults reportedly tackled him and zip-tied him until police could arrive.
A Tulsa man learned a lesson about parking after he left his truck in drive only to have his pet dog accidentally step on the gas and ram into a local grocery store. Nobody was hurt.
A man in Del City was arrested after officers discovered an improvised explosive device inside his vehicle during a traffic stop. The man claimed it was an alarm clock he was inventing.
