Sheriff's Beat: Woman reports she was attacked after bringing man home from tavern

TAHLEQUAH — The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department took a report Saturday from a woman who claimed a man had assaulted her Thursday.

The complainant said she met the suspect at a tavern and they returned to her residence. She told Lt. David Haddock the man physically attacked her after she refused his sexual advances, but she did not recall any sexual assault. Haddock’s report includes reference to a contusion under one of the woman’s eyes.

Deputies took a report from a Jay man who filed complaints of grand theft, destruction of property and trespassing. The man said the lock was cut to the gate of his hay field on North Highway 10 and his McCormick MTX 4x4 tractor and front-end loader were stolen. The serial number of the tractor is SNJJE3335363. The serial number of the loader is SN7164626.

On Tuesday, a Hulbert man reported the theft of his 2004 Chevrolet 2500 truck near the intersection of Lost City and 715 roads. The man said he left the truck on the roadside Monday after it had engine trouble and overheated, but the vehicle was gone when he returned Tuesday morning to make repairs. The truck has a Cherokee Nation tag with number 906-94C.

A Cookson man working in Missouri called the department on Saturday to report he had loaned his truck to a man, who subsequently sold it without permission. The truck is a blue 2000 Toyota Tacoma with Cherokee tag number OF-196.

On Friday, a Tahlequah woman notified deputies that had thrown a cement block against the passenger door of her vehicle.

On March 24, a Tahlequah woman filed a report stating that two juveniles had thrown rocks at her car.
