EDMOND — A 22-year-old woman faces a felony assault with a deadly weapon complaint after officers responded to a call about an assault at an Edmond apartment complex, according to an incident report.

Shortly after midnight Jan. 6, Edmond Police Officer Brad Griffin responded to the call, which came from the Rolling Green Apartments, 400 E. Danforth Road, according to the report filed by Griffin. It was released Thursday by the Edmond Police Department.

The reporting party said a friend had just been assaulted with a knife and the victim was “bleeding everywhere,” Griffin stated. The suspect was a next door neighbor who was said to be wearing “colorful pants,” the report stated.

Griffin stated that after he arrived he was walking toward an apartment when he saw the knife allegedly used in the assault lying on the sidewalk. He could see dried blood on the blade, the report stated.

Officers contacted a woman who was wearing colorful pants as described by the reporting party, Griffin stated.

A fellow officer told Griffin that the suspect had called the reporting party’s apartment after an earlier altercation, Griffin stated. During the call, the suspect asked the victim and a second female to step outside, the report stated.

The females in the apartment came outside, at which time the suspect allegedly produced a knife, Griffin stated. According to the witness, after the victim had been injured the suspect allegedly advanced on the other female; she was able to defend herself with a belt, causing the knife to be dropped onto the sidewalk, the report stated.

Griffin stated that based on that information he arrested the suspect and transported her to the city jail. The suspect remained highly emotional, a state that was affecting her breathing, the report stated.

Griffin stated that as he attempted to help the suspect with a breathing exercise she said, “I can’t believe I did this.”

Due to her injuries, the victim was admitted to OU Medical Center-Edmond, Griffin stated. A witness and the suspect told different stories about what happened, the report stated.

Griffin stated that Lindsey S. Thompson, also known as Lindsey Shae Bohanon, 22, of Edmond, was arrested on two felony assault with a deadly weapon complaints. Later, Bohanon was booked into the county jail. Her bond was set at $12,500, according to jail records.

On Jan. 15, Oklahoma County prosecutors filed formal felony charges against Bohanon, which is her last name according to Oklahoma State Courts Network records. On Jan. 16, an arrest warrant was issued.

Bohanon has not yet entered a plea in court, according to records. No future court dates have been scheduled. |
