On May 29, Police Officer Danny Austill responded to a domestic-in-progress call in the 4000 block of Canaan Creek Road. Dispatch informed him they were on the phone with a male who advised his girlfriend had been hitting him and was chasing him with a cleaver-type knife, Austill stated in the incident report released Wednesday.
The male said the female also broke a window and he used a landscape light to prevent the cleaver from making contact with him, Austill stated. He said the female had broken a window, Austill stated.
When he arrived, the victim was in the front yard holding a pole designed to house a landscape light, Austill stated.
In the back yard, he saw a mark on the patio area consistent with damage caused by a cleaver and a broken window, Austill stated. Knives described by the victim were found in the back passenger seat of a vehicle described by the victim, Austill stated.
Several glass pipes were found during the call, Austill stated.
At the station, the suspect became verbally abusive and attempted to break a patrol car window by kicking it, Austill stated. She also provided false information about her identity, Austill stated.
Larane Dareece Brown, 21, of Oklahoma City, was arrested on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon, malicious injury and destruction of property, false personation to a law enforcement officer and possession of drug paraphernalia, Austill stated.
When she insisted she did not assault anyone with knives, he explained that threatening to do bodily harm and attempting to follow through with those threats is considered assault, Austill stated.
Brown was transported to the county jail, Austill stated. On Tuesday, she posted an unknown amount for bond, according to jail records. Initial probable cause paperwork has been filed in Oklahoma County District Court, according to online records.
