Man jailed for attacking woman, teenager

TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police filed a report this week on the recent arrest of a man for domestic assault and battery.

Terry Braden, 53, allegedly attacked a woman because she left her phone at home when she went shopping. During the assault, a teenage girl attempted to intervene and Braden allegedly struck her in the face, causing a bloody nose and busted lip. When police arrived, Braden met them outside and told them he was ready to go to jail, according to a report of the arrest.

Police arrested Carl D. Guernsey, 36, and Danny R. Sanders, 22, both of Tahlequah, for shoplifting at Reasor’s Wednesday.
